News: Butler has been diagnosed with a sprained left thumb, and will miss the rest of the preseason, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports. Impact: The Bulls will reevaluate the starting shooting guard prior to the start of the regular season, so he should be considered questionable in that sense. Butler won't practice this week, so hopefully the time off will allow him to heal up, and even if he misses the first couple games of the regular season, he should be back on the court in relatively short order. Kirk Hinrich would be his most likely replacement in the starting lineup if he had to miss time.(RotoWire, )

News: Butler (thumb) will not require surgery on his sprained thumb, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Butler left Sunday's contest with the injury and did not return. Owners can rest easy, however, as he's only slated to miss a few days and should be fine when the regular season opens. Butler will not play against the Cavs on Monday and is slated to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, after which a firmer timetable will likely be established.(RotoWire, )

News: Butler scored 29 points (8-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 12-16 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes Thursday against the Hawks. Impact: Butler took over the game in the fourth quarter and hit a three-pointer as time expired to win the game. He's been impressive offensively during the preseason to go along with his usual excellent defense. Butler might be on the verge of a breakout fantasy campaign.(RotoWire, )

News: Butler scored 21 points (7-8 FG, 7-7 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 22 minutes Monday against the Nuggets. Impact: Butler was extremely productive in limited action Monday and has shown an improved offensive game so far this preseason. If he can keep that going throughout the regular season, he would really increase his fantasy value as he is always a reliable source for defensive stats as well.(RotoWire, )
