Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Drains winning free throws Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler managed 29 points (9-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-9 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and one block over 40 minutes in Thursday's 104-103 win over the Celtics.

Butler's scoring total was a team high, but it was his final two points of the night that were the most crucial. The All-Star forward was fouled by Marcus Smart on his game-winning shot attempt and sank the subsequent pair of free throws with 0.9 seconds remaining to give the Bulls the improbable victory. Butler bounced back nicely over the last two games after missing four contests earlier in February with a heel injury, following up Tuesday's 19-point, 12-assist double-double with what was his best scoring total since Jan. 25. He's worked in concert with key free-agent acquisition Dwyane Wade when the latter has been healthy, and heads into the All-Star break with career-best averages of 24.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists, along with a figure of 1.8 steals that serves as his second-best number in that category.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Struggles with shot, gets to foul line 19 times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (heel) returned to the court and contributed 19 points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 15-19 FT), 12 assists, four steals and two rebounds across 38 minutes during a 105-94 win over the Raptors on Tuesday.

After a one-game absence, Butler returned to provide a disastrous shooting performance. But he was able to salvage it somewhat by getting to the free throw line for a hefty 19 attempts. He also managed to contribute in other areas, matching his season high with 12 dimes, and the four steals tied for his second-best total of the season. If Dwyane Wade (wrist) is forced to miss Thursday's game against the Celtics, look for Butler to have a very high workload.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butler (heel) will play in Tuesday's game against the Raptors, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Butler being active was expected, as the Bulls listed him as probable Tuesday morning after he took part in shootaround. Butler, however, still hasn't been able to put together a full practice, as he was just a partial participant Monday, so he may still not be at 100 percent. Nevertheless, Butler will return to action Tuesday after missing three of the team's last four games, which will also send Doug McDermott back to a role off the bench. Dwyane Wade (wrist) has already been ruled out for Tuesday's contest, so look for Butler to be the primary playmaker for the Bulls whenever he is on the floor.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Probable to play Tuesday vs. Raptors
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler (heel) is listed as probable to play Tuesday against the Raptors, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

After participating in portions of Monday's practice, Butler was able to take part in the Bulls' morning shootaround and looks to have made notable progress in his recovery from a bruised right heel. An announcement on his status likely won't come until closer to game time, but at this point he appears poised to return to the court following three absences in the last four games. The Bulls will be without Dwyane Wade (wrist) on Tuesday, so if Butler does play, he'll be tasked with primary playmaking duties for most of the night.

Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Partial participtaes in Monday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Butler (heel) participated in portions of Monday's practice, Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago reports.

The Bulls continue to handle Butler on a game-to-game basis while he nurses a sore right heel, and his status for Tuesday's game against the Raptors if firmly up in the air. The 27-year-old has missed four of the last five games, and the Bulls are just 1-4 during that span. With Dwyane Wade (wrist) doubtful to play Tuesday, the Bulls could once again be severely shorthanded on the wing if Butler is ultimately ruled out.
