Jimmy Butler returned to the floor for the Wolves after missing two games and went for 25 points, five rebounds, seven assists and one turnover in the win over the Thunder on Friday night.
In the first three games of the season, Jimmy Butler didn’t quite look right. He followed up by sitting two games with respiratory infection. Tonight in his return, he looked like Jimmy Buckets again. And Jimmy Buckets is fantasy gold. Butler looked comfortable and carved up the Thunder defense, shooting 70 percent from the floor and getting to the line 13 times all while dishing seven assists. The free throws are a huge part of Butler’s game and he shot just three total in his first three games this season. Fear not, fantasy owners, Buckets has returned.
