Jimmy Butler Out 3-6 Weeks - No Surgery Required

The Chicago Bulls suffered another crushing injury this weekend, losing Jimmy Butler for 3-6 weeks to an elbow injury in a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.  After losing Derrick Rose, who plans on returning before the end of the season, Chicago will now have to fight to stay at the top of the Eastern Conference playoff race without its starting backcourt.  Aaron Brooks and a combination of Kirk Hinrich/Tony Snell will have to do until April.  Brooks and Snell are worth owning in fantasy basketball, you can leave Hinrich alone.

Hopefully Tom Thibodeau is forced to play rookie Doug McDermott, as the Bulls will be looking for scoring. They have failed to score 100 points in five of their last six games.
