He has been playing great ever since he took over for the injured Luol Deng, does he deserve more minutes even when Deng gets back?

Thibs loves running his big guns into the ground so I don't see huge minutes when Deng's back. He deserves more minutes for sure but I'm not sure he'll get them.
Looks like a stud in the making though. Nice stash in dynasty leagues.

Do I need to drop this guy after today? Or is Deng going to be out longer

Hopefully he can get some minutes at SG when Deng returns.  If they can cut Deng's minutes a bit and give him playing time at SG maybe he gets 20+ minutes.  He deserves minutes after his stellar defense on Gay and Kobe.

He should be started until Deng gets back, he almost is good at every category except 3s and blks. As long as Deng plays though he'll be pretty limited fantasy wise

Looks to be one of Thibs guys.  If so, he should get plenty of minutes even off the bench.

The Bulls need guys who can score.  He can create his own shot and get to the rim.  He also appears to be a good defender.  He should be able to steal minutes from Hamilton.  My only concern would be that he doesn't shoot well from behind the three point line.  The Bulls need more perimeter scorers, especially once Rose comes back.

In deep leagues he should be owned, 12 teams and lower probably not. He took advantage of a weak D today and he's going to be inconsistent but if Deng or even Rip miss time again look out

Isn't it a foregone conclusion that rip will miss time again this year?

Jimmy is a great defender. He wants to guard the Carmelo's and Lebrons.

I think he's an intriguing prospect. If he logs another 30 minute game, I'm picking him up. I could see him averaging 10 points, 7 boards, and 1 steal with good percentages. Nothing flashy, but a solid last player on your team.

Can someone please provide some insight On this guy? I never heard of him until last week. But That was without Deng in the lineup. I'm thinking of picking him up from waivers... ovet Martell Webster and Kawhi Leonard.
Can Butler keep up of this production? What can we expect from him rest of season?

Tom Thibodeau said that Jimmy Butler is "a big part of the team" following Monday's win.


I already owned him (deep league) but I'm not sure if his minutes are going to keep up. I think he'll steal Rip Hamilton's minutes so maybe around 22-25 average is a good bet, watch the situation. Deng definitely needs to rest a little more since it's the second half of the season, and Rose may help both of them on the offensive end, once he is back.

Well I'm in a 10 man league .. so maybe I should look elsewhere. 22-25 minutes are not going to cut it for me.
Martell Webster Maybe my guy To pick up.

He's good, but no Kawhi.

He's getting waaay more than 22-25 minutes lately. Check his game logs. He got 31 minutes WITH Deng back.
