Bulls guard Jimmy Butler likely out until DecemberPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Chicago Sun-Times with more on Jimmy Butler’s recent injury:
The Bulls announced Wednesday that shooting guard Jimmy Butler stayed behind in Chicago because of turf toe on his right big toe.
He was listed as week-to-week, but coach Tom Thibodeau didn’t want to start throwing timetables around.
“I don’t even want to speculate,’’ said Thibodeau, whose team begins a six-game road trip Thursday against the Nuggets. “He has to get the swelling out first.’’
The best-case scenario would be for Butler to be re-evaluated next week after the game against the Pistons and be ready for the Nov. 30 game against the Cavaliers, the last stop on the road trip, but he likely won’t play until at least a week or two into December.
