Report: Dr. James Andrews finds ‘no issue’ with Jimmy Butler’s knee

2 Comments

Jimmy Butler won’t play against the Spurs tonight, because he was visiting Dr. James Andrews today.

But at least there’s good news.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com:

This is huge for the Bulls. They’re dramatically better with Butler on the court.

After missing a month, Butler played 34 minutes in Chicago’s win over the Rockets on Saturday then missed its win over the Bucks on Monday due to swelling. So, I wouldn’t assume he’s completely out of the woods yet.

But as long as there are no major problems, he should return soon enough to help the Bulls’ playoff pursuit.
