Although expected to play, Jimmy Butler (knee) is listed as questionable to play on Monday against the Raptors.
Butler owners may get a massive boost just in time for the playoffs. The Bulls are clinging to a playoff spot so they definitely need him. His knee was cleared of any structural damage by Dr. James Andrews but Fred Hoiberg said that there is a plan to limit his minutes if he were to play on Monday.
With Pau Gasol (knee) ruled out for at least two games and Derrick Rose (groin) doubtful for Monday, Butler should see a major workload despite being on a minutes restriction. The Bulls need him. E’Twaun Moore is in line for a drop in minutes and production, but may hold value if Rose sits out. Justin Holiday will have a hard time holding his current value with Butler’s return.
