Jimmy Butler (illness) will miss at least one more game for Chicago

Chicago Bulls guard/forward Jimmy Butler (illness) will not play in Thursday's game against the New York Knicks.

What It Means:

The same illness has already cost butler the second half of Monday's game and the entirety of Tuesday's game this week. The Bulls' offense will likely run through Dwyane Wade on Thursday, with Doug McDermott standing to see a big workload again.

Wade has seen his usage rate jump from 29.0 percent while sharing the floor with Butler, to 39.3 percent in 307 minutes with Butler off the floor this season, and he should be in for a big workload on Thursday.
