Chicago Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler missed Friday night’s game against the Houston Rockets due to a contusion on his right heel.

The Bulls forward had an MRI on his heel Saturday afternoon, and is now considered day-to-day.

Luckily for Butler, the Bulls do not play Saturday or Sunday, so he will have extra time to heal up for Monday’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Chicago fell to the Rockets on Friday in overtime at a score of 121-117. A controversial foul-call on Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams, who started in Butler’s place, helped seal the victory for Houston. The team is now 0-3 in the three games their All-Star forward has missed this season.

In additional Bulls news, reporter K.C. Johnson notes that forward Cristiano Felicio is expected to miss up to a week or more with an ankle injury. Chicago has also recalled rookie Denzel Valentine from the Developmental League.
