Jimmy Butler (knee) will make his much anticipated return to the Bulls lineup on Saturday against the Rockets.
Taj Gibson (hamstring) will also make it back and the Bulls are starting to get back to full strength. Butler’s return has ramifications across the entire lineup, as Derrick Rose won’t be able to shoot on sight and guys like Bobby Portis and E’Twaun Moore will have less opportunities than they’ve had. For Portis owners might want to wait a game or two to see how things go, but with Moore he can be dropped for a hot free agent and the same goes for any mid-level free agent with regard to Portis. Pau Gasol’s numbers will come back to Earth as well, but then again the Rockets give up big lines to everybody.
