Dwyane Wade Jimmy Butler

Chicago Bulls All-Stars Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade have both been struggling with their health recently. Butler missed three straight games with a right heel contusion, and Wade missed one game due to illness.

They returned to the floor Friday night in what ended up being a disappointing effort where they fell to the Phoenix Suns 115-97. Despite starting in the game against Phoenix, the Bulls vets don’t seem to be out of the woods just yet, health-wise.

The Bulls updated the status of both Butler and Wade for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler is still being listed as questionable with a right heel contusion, where Wade is listed as probable with a new injury, a contusion on his right wrist.

The Bulls are 1-5 in games without Butler this season, and 3-2 in games Wade has missed. Both stars struggled against the Suns, with Butler putting up 20 points on 6-of-16 shooting, and Wade adding in 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting.

Bulls rookie Paul Zipser missed the game against Phoenix, and remains doubtful for Sunday’s game.
