Jimmy Butler SG/SF CHI 4 Days

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau suggested that he won't rest any of his starters in Chicago's final three games.

"I don't want to change how we do anything," he said. "Just worry about our improvement, get ready for Detroit and everything will take care of itself." The Bulls are riding a seven-game win streak to take a one-game lead over Toronto for the East's third seed, so it's unsurprising that Thibodeau doesn't want to mess with his rotations.

Jimmy Butler scored 17 points on 6-of-16 shooting during Wednesday's 105-92 win over the Hawks, adding two boards, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

After he shot a solid 45.0 percent from the field in February, Butler dropped back down to just 40.5 percent in March. His shot totals are on the rise and he's also getting more designed isolation plays in the offense, so just needs a little efficiency to become a stat-stuffing stud. Butler will be an early target in fantasy leagues next season.

Jimmy Butler had 17 points, eight rebounds, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 4-of-8 shooting Saturday.

He hit 8-of-10 free throws and has been very consistent over his last four games, scoring between 13 and 17 points in each of them, while racking up rebounds, assists, steals and 3-pointers. The Bulls play three games in the upcoming week, so owners will have to weigh options carefully when setting lineups, but Butler looks like a pretty safe bet right now.

Jimmy Butler was unaffected against a tough matchup during Friday's 91-79 loss to the Pacers, scoring 17 points with two boards, one assist, five steals and four 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

He has nine steals and six triples in his last three games and is probably carrying a lot of fantasy owners this week. Butler's 1-of-11 from Saturday seems like a distant memory and he's looking at the best matchup possible against the Sixers on Saturday.

Jimmy Butler, who had hit just 5-of-23 shots in his previous two games, hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in 46 minutes on Wednesday.

This is the type of line we were hoping to see from Butler every night this season. Well, minus the five turnovers and four fouls. But he's had trouble hitting shots all year and has been more of an inconsistent headache than anything else. He could still get this thing figured out at any time, but owners should learn to enjoy his good nights and expect them to be offset by bad ones.

Jimmy Butler hit just 1-of-11 shots for five points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Saturday's win.

Yuck. Butler ruined the hopes of many daily-league players tonight, but has been playing pretty well, despite the poor shooting that has hounded him for most of the season. He'll bounce back from this one and the fact he plays a ton of minutes every night works in his favor. Keep him in your lineup.

Butler's shooting percentage has really spiked over his previous 10, making 49.4 percent from the field for 14.1 points, 6.3 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.6 steals.
