The Chicago Bulls announced today that swingman Jimmy Butler will miss the team’s current road trip, due to a turf toe injury he suffered on Monday night against the Charlotte Bobcats. From the press release and Chicago Tribune: “Subsequent examinations and an MRI confirmed a sprain (turf toe) to his right great toe. Butler will not accompany the team on its current road trip and he is listed as week-to-week. […] ‘He’s someone we’re definitely going to miss, especially with his energy and defense, and he’s knocking down shots,’ Derrick Rose said. ‘But there’s Mike Dunleavy, there’s Kirk (Hinrich), there’s myself when I play (shooting guard.) We just have to fill in for him.’ The Bulls begin their first stretch of four games in five nights Thursday in Denver.”
