“Jimmy B. is Back”

Jimmy Butler (knee) is set to make his return tonight in Toronto, following a three-game absence. Chicago went 2-1 during that span and fell into the East’s 9th spot, a full GB Detroit.

While Jimmy’s return is encouraging, it’s sort of an injury carousel for the Bulls these days. Pau Gasol will miss (at least) the next couple of games with a knee injury and Derrick Rose (groin) is a game-time decision tonight.

Butler obviously provides more stability, especially when facing a high-octane backcourt like Toronto’s, but without Gasol and constant injury concerns plaguing the franchise, reaching the postseason is a daunting challenge.

Let’s see if Butler and the Bulls can get back on track v. the red-hot Raptors (winners of 8 out their last 10).
