Bulls’ Jimmy Butler leaves with elbow injury, does not return (VIDEO)


As if the Bulls needed any more injury issues.

Early in the third quarter of Chicago’s Sunday afternoon contest against the Clippers, Jimmy Butler suffered an elbow injury while running into a DeAndre Jordan screen.

There didn’t seem to be anything nefarious at play, and the degree of seriousness is not yet known. But the Bulls did shut Butler down for the rest of the game after diagnosing the injury as a sprain.
