• Coach Tom Thibodeau said that Jimmy Butler (sore right knee) feels good and will decide whether he is playing after warming up on Saturday.

    Butler has missed the last four games but there is a good chance he returns in this one. Fifth in the NBA in minutes per game at 36.9, Butler has been a top-10 per-game player in standard leagues and has really turned it on over the last month, with top-5 numbers. Nemanja Bjelica started and played very well in 33.4 minutes per game in the four games Butler missed, returning top-75 value with 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 2.0 triples, but it is assumed he will go back to his 10-20 minute per game role.
