Chicago Bulls not likely to see Jimmy Butler Saturday after scary injury

An All-Star, Butler is averaging 22.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists in his first season with the Wolves.

Butler finished with 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting over 25 minutes. P.J. Tucker started in his place and had 11 points in 28 minutes.
