Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Rolls ankle in win over Argentina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler rolled his ankle in Friday's game against Argentina, but it is considered a minor injury, Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News reports.

He rolled the ankle in a 111-74 blowout win in an exhibition against Argentina as the U.S. men's basketball team prepares for the Olympics in Rio. It certainly shouldn't be an injury that lingers past the Olympics, and he'll likely be able to get back in action in the coming days/weeks.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Will play in Summer Olympics
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler has committed to playing for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

Talks have been swirling this week about the possibility of the Bulls dealing away Butler, but those discussions may have lost some momentum after the team decided to trade their other high-profile backcourt starter, Derrick Rose, to the Knicks. With Butler's future with the Bulls seemingly secure for the time being, he can turn his attention to participating in his first Olympic Games. While Butler has fully established himself as a franchise player the last two seasons, he might have trouble finding the court on a star-studded U.S. roster. He'll have to compete for minutes with a group of wings that includes Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Gets triple-double in 26 minutes in finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler compiled 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, 12 rebounds, and one block over 26 minutes in Wednesday's 115-105 win over the 76ers.

True to his word, coach Fred Hoiberg didn't hand Butler his usual allotment of minutes in a rather meaningless season finale, but it didn't prevent the swingman from recording his second triple-double of the season and his career, despite a poor shooting night. Butler was ultimately able to finish his fifth NBA season on the court rather than the training room, but it appears that he was never really back to full strength after straining his left knee shortly before the All-Star break. His pre- and post-break splits bear that out, as Butler posted averages of 22.4 points (on 45.8% shooting), 5.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.1 treys across 37.9 minutes in the first half, and 17.1 points (44.3%), 5.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.6 treys across 34.5 minutes in the second. All told, Butler was able to finish with career-best numbers in several categories, and with Derrick Rose on the decline and Pau Gasol unlikely to return to the club in free agency, the swingman cemented himself as the Bulls' franchise centerpiece. His well-rounded production should make him a high selection in fantasy drafts next season, though he's fraught with plenty of risk, as health issues have prevented him from playing more than 67 games in any of the past three campaigns.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: To play "some" on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Butler will play "some" minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday, Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com reports.

Butler exploded for a career-high 53 points to go with 10 rebounds and six assists over 49 minutes in his previous matchup with the 76ers back on Jan. 14, but it looks like coach Fred Hoiberg won't give him the opportunity to duplicate that effort. With the Bulls eliminated from playoff contention and Butler having missed extensive time this season due to left knee issues, it makes sense for Hoiberg to curb the star swingman's minutes in the finale to avoid any lingering problems heading into the offseason. While the Bulls haven't cited a specific minutes count for Butler on Wednesday, the uncertainty regarding his playing time is significant enough to consider other options for your DFS lineups.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Scores 23 points on 11 shots, hands out 11 dimes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler finished with 23 points (8-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 assists, three rebounds, and one block in 29 minutes during the Bulls' 121-116 win over the Pelicans on Monday.

Despite the Bulls being eliminated from playoff contention, Butler assume his usual spot in the starting lineup, though he saw fewer minutes than usual. Still, he managed to tally at least 21 points for the third straight game and the sixth time in the last seven contests. Butler is again likely to see his minutes restricted in Wednesday's season finale against the 76ers, but he might not have much trouble producing gaudy stats with the team's other stars, Derrick Rose (rest) and Pau Gasol (knee), already ruled out.
