The Bulls are 1-4 in games without Butler this season and will need his help competing against one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams who just upgraded by trading for former Orlando Magic big Serge Ibaka.
Chicago is currently 26-29 and sit in the seventh spot in the conference. They’re only a half game ahead of the eighth place Detroit Pistons, and three games behind the sixth place Indiana Pacers.
