Jimmy Butler is seeking treatment options for his right knee meniscus injury and there should be an update on Sunday according to Tom Thibodeau.
We’ll probably learn as soon as Butler learns what the plan is there. He’s going to push to play and as we’ve said in the past, he’s probably looking at a multi-week absence and the hope for owners is that this truly isn’t serious, obviously. If it is serious, even if he opts for the fast route on recovery it might lead to a small batch of games at the end of the year, at best. Nemanja Bjelica will start for him on Saturday but there isn’t a true beneficiary that is a great bet for standard league value the rest of the way.
