News: Butler scored nine points (3-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added four points, two assists, and a steal in 27 minutes against the Trail Blazers Friday. Impact: Butler struggled in the first half, shooting 0-7 from the field before the break. He started to turn it around in the third quarter, but sat out the entire fourth with the Bulls already down by more than 20. The Bulls were playing in the second night of a back-to-back set, and none of the normal rotation players had a good game. This game looks more like an outlier than a sign of things to come for Butler.(RotoWire, )

News: Butler recorded a line of 23 points (11-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one asist, and two steals with three turnovers. He played 37 minutes in the loss to the Kings Thursday. Impact: Butler has really come into his own this season and is emerging as a star in the NBA. Oft-injured teammate Derrick Rose figures to have a lot of DNP's over the regular season, which should really open up Butler's shot attempts. He is a player to target in trades, especially in keeper leagues. It's very possible some owners may not know what they have in Butler.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Butler continues to be officially listed as "probable" with a left thumb sprain, but he's played in each of the last eight games.

In Saturday's loss to the Pacers, he scored a season-high 32 points to go with six rebounds.(RotoWire, )
