Good win for the Bulls. Came back strong down the stretch and showed a lot of toughness. Jimmy Butler leads everybody with 23 points.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler is on the usual "warm up & see how he feels plan," but sounds like there's a decent chance he plays tonight vs. CHA. #Bulls

Joel Brigham

Jimmy Butler playing tonight (if warmup goes well), most likely to impress "Million $ Quartet" guys, who are doing halftime show.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls update Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) is questionable. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is probable.

Thibodeau: Jimmy Butler 'could be a go' for #Bulls tonight - bit.ly/1xs9zvR http://t.co/TUW5OcRvtW

Sean Highkin

Jimmy Butler is a gametime decision for tonight. Thibs: "It looks like he could be a go."

Tom Moore

Not in Sixers' plans (or K Leonard). RT @TheMikeScanlan @Tom Moore @ChrisRosica @Kman4forfour Jimmy butler?

Chuck Swirsky

For tonight at Detroit: Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) is out. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is probable.

Sean Highkin

Thibs didn't know whether Jimmy Butler will play in Detroit tomorrow but said he's getting close.

Josh Lewenberg

Guess DeMar isn't missing Jimmy Butler, huh? DeRozan has hit his first 4 shots, including two 3s, scoring 10 of Toronto's first 19 points.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls versus Toronto Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) is out. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is questionable.

Nick Friedell

Doesn't matter who it was, doesn't matter where it was, any win without Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson is a good one for Bulls.

Chuck Swirsky

For tomorrow versus Pacers: Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is out. Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) is out.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler sticking around to put lots of left-handed shots. He's a righty, but his left elbow is the bad one. #Bulls

Sean Highkin

Thibs says Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson both participated fully in practice today.

David Locke

To be clear what Jimmy Butler has done in Chicago is the most improved player award. Incredible. Gordon Hayward just deserves discussion.
