Jimmy Butler (knee) has not been ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Spurs.
Butler says he’s feeling a lot better and Fred Hoiberg is optimistic that he will play. This is great news for a team that looked somewhat silly rushing Butler back if he wasn’t ready. We’ll keep you updated and be ready to slide the values of Derrick Rose, E’Twaun Moore and Pau Gasol accordingly. Rose will be a borderline 8-cat play over the long-term and a punt-only guy in 9-cat, Moore will go back to the wire in standard leagues, and Pau will slow down from his monstrous lines just a little bit.
