2019 Fantasy Outlook
Butler will be joining his fourth team in four years. He forced his way out of Minnesota after 10 appearances last season, finishing the year with the 76ers. While he missed out on the All-Star team for the first time since 2013-14, possibly due to his vehement trade demand, Butler played up to his standards during his age 29 season. His scoring dipped once arriving in Philly due to the wealth of talent around him, but he still managed 18.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.9 steals in 2018-19. Now with the Heat, Butler is the clear-cut best player on the team, and he should control the offense. As a result, it's possible we see his usage rate hit highs we haven't seen since his final year in Chicago (26.5%). That season, he averaged 23.9 points on 16.5 shots, 6.2 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.9 steals. He did that in 37.0 minutes per game, however, and it's unlikely he'll see that much run in Miami considering he'll be 30 years old and no longer coached by Tom Thibodeau. Fantasy owners do need to take into consideration Butler's health. Since his age 24 season, Butler is averaging just 68.2 appearances per year. But ultimately, Butler appears to be en route for another All-Star-caliber season. Read Past Outlooks

Butler (toe) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Hornets.
ANALYSIS
Butler suffered a toe injury Sunday and failed to practice Tuesday, so it's not especially surprising that he's unavailable for Wednesday's game, which projects as winnable even without him. In his absence, Goran Dragic and Kendrick Nunn may take on extra playmaking responsibilities, while Andre Iguodala, Jae Crowder and Derrick Jones could see more minutes on the wing.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Butler started off the 2018-19 season hot with Minnesota, notching at least 20 points in his first four with averages of 24.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3. assists, 3.8 steals and 1.3 blocks in that span. However, his second season with the Timberwolves was cut short early, as they dealt the four-time All-Star to Philadelphia on Nov. 12. It didn't take long for Butler to adjust to his new surroundings. He pulled off three performances of 30-plus points within a three-week period, peaking with back-to-back 38-point games in early December. After health issues sidelined him for a few matchups, he got back into the flow in the new year by recording at least 16 points in seven straight contests. A wrist injury cost him a week of action in late January, but in Butler's reintroduction on Jan. 29, he racked up 20 points, six dimes, five boards, and five steals. He also exuded efficiency from the line throughout the year, most notably posting a 12-for-12 performance on Nov. 19 and efforts of 14-for-14 on Feb. 8 and 13-for-13 on Mar. 23. As the playoffs approached, Butler kept grabbing rebounds and forcing takeaways. By the end of the regular season, he'd accumulated enough swipes to rank fifth in the league with 1.9 steals per game and sixth with a 2.7 steal percentage. In total, Butler averaged 18.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists across his two stops. He proceeded to appear in 12 postseason games as the Sixers went to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, averaging 19.4 points, 6.1 rebounds. 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals. That included a 36-point explosion in Game 1 of the opening-round series against the Nets as well as a pair of postseason double-doubles.

2017

After six seasons in Chicago, Butler joined the Timberwolves in 2017-18 following an offseason trade. He made an immediate impact in Minnesota, playing a key role in the team's first playoff berth in 14 years despite missing six weeks due to a knee injury. Butler's 22.2 points per game paced the squad, and he ranked second with 4.9 assists per contest. The former first-round pick posted the highest field-goal percentage (47.4) and true shooting percentage (59.0) of his career while knocking down 85.4 percent of his free throws and 35.0 percent of his 3-point attempts. Butler scored 30-plus points 11 times, topping out with 39 in a Dec. 27 win over Denver. As usual, he was a menace on the defensive side of the court, as his 2.0 steals per game ranked sixth in the NBA. Butler's strong all-around numbers earned him a spot as a reserve on the Western Conference All-Star team, though he elected to sit the exhibition out in order to rest for the season's second half. He was also named to the All-NBA Third Team for the second consecutive campaign and landed on the All-NBA Defensive Second Team for the fourth time in his career. Butler posted three double-doubles during the campaign, including a 26-point, 10-rebound performance against Detroit on Nov. 19 in which he also racked up five steals. In Minnesota's first-round playoff exit against Houston, he averaged 15.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists while logging 34.1 minutes per contest. Butler was outstanding in the Timberwolves' Game 3 victory, pouring in 28 points along with seven boards and five dimes while making 4-of-6 from beyond the arc.

2016

Already a star, Butler had his best season yet in 2016-17. Not only did he stay healthier than he had in years, playing in 76 games (75 starts), he also registered new career highs in average points (23.9), rebounds (6.2) and assists (5.5) while matching his career-best mark with 1.9 steals. Butler racked up explosive scoring performance, posting 30-plus points 15 times, including 40-plus on five occasions. His biggest game came Jan. 2, when Butler poured in 52 points -- including hitting 21-of-22 free throws -- with 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block against the Hornets. That was the most impressive of his 15 double-doubles. He logged a triple-double on Feb. 25, posting 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists against the Cavaliers. On Mar. 26, Butler dished a career-best 14 assists against Milwaukee. The forward recorded another triple-double on Apr. 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers with a 19-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist effort. He was voted a starter for the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, scoring six points in 19 minutes for the East. The Bulls made the playoffs and took their first-round series with Boston to six games, thanks in no small part to Butler's 22.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.7 steals per postseason contest. As a reward for his career year, Butler was named to the All-NBA Third Team.

2015

Coming off his big breakout year, Butler re-signed with the Bulls on a five-year, $95 million contract prior to the 2015-16 season. He responded by making the All-Star team for the second straight year, but was also limited to less than 70 games (67, to be precise) by injury for the third straight campaign -- this time, a knee strain that also held him out of the All-Star festivities. Nonetheless, Butler shined statistically with 20.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals in 36.9 minutes per game. On Jan. 3, Butler broke Michael Jordan's franchise record when he scored 40 points in a half against the Toronto Raptors; he scored 42 in the game. On Jan.14, he put up the biggest game of his career, going off for a career-high 53 points on 15-for-30 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals against the 76ers. Butler had another game with 40-plus points, and he scored 30-plus on an additional four occasions. The 26-year old recorded his first career triple-double on Apr. 2 with 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists against the Detroit Pistons. Those rebound and assist totals both represented career highs. On Apr. 13, he triple-doubled again, posting 10 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists against the Sixers. For the third consecutive season, Butler was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team.

2014

Butler took an enormous leap forward in his fourth NBA season. Already a defensive maven, he drastically improved his shot selection and accuracy. That resulted in him rewarding the Bulls with 20.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals in an NBA-leading 38.7 minutes per game. His field-goal percentage rebounded to 46.2 (from 39.7 the year before) and his three-point percentage jumped back up to 37.8 (from 28.3). The only knock on his season was that he was again unable to play a complete campaign, as he was limited to 65 games mostly due to an elbow injury. Nonetheless, Butler racked up 34 games with 20-plus points and cleared 30 points on seven occasions. On Dec. 18, he posted a season-high 35 points with five rebounds, seven assists, four steals and a block in 44 minutes against the Knicks. He matched that output with another 35 on Jan. 29 against the Lakers, adding seven rebounds and three steals. Butler also notched four double-doubles, including a 28-point, 12-rebound effort on Feb. 27 against the Timberwolves. The 25-year old set a new career high with five blocks against the Raptors on Dec. 22 and posted a career-high six steals on two occasions. For his efforts, he was selected to his first All-Star Game, in which he scored six points in nine minutes for the East. Butler raised his game to another level over the course of 12 playoff contests, averaging 22.9 points, 5.6 rebounds 3.2 assists and 2.4 steals. He scored 30-plus points twice in the Bulls' first-round win over Milwaukee and double-doubled in Game 5 of that series. Butler was named the NBA's Most Improved Player after the campaign, and he also made the NBA All-Defensive Second Team for the second straight year.

2013

Continuing the positive trend line of his career, Butler stepped into a full-time starting role for the Bulls in 2013-14, starting all 67 games in which he appeared, though he missed some time with a toe injury. He averaged 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.9 steals -- all career highs. His 38.7 minutes per game represented by far his highest usage yet. Butler scored in double figures in 54 games, clearing 20-plus points five times. On Dec. 30, he scored a season-high 26 points against the Grizzlies, thanks in no small part to making 12-of-14 free throws. The 24-year old notched five double-doubles on the year, including grabbing a season-high 13 rebounds on Feb. 11 against the Hawks. He also set a new personal best with nine assists in an Apr. 5 game against Washington. Butler racked up multiple steals on 36 occasions, and he collected a season-high five swipes four times. The Bulls made the playoffs again, and Butler continued playing major minutes in their first-round loss to Washington. He averaged 43.5 minutes over the five-game series, posting 13.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in postseason play. As a reward for his efforts, Butler was selected to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team.

2012

Butler saw a increase in playing time during his second NBA season, playing all 82 games for the Bulls and starting 20 of them. He averaged 8.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 26.0 minutes as a sophomore while shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from 3-point range -- both major improvements over his rookie year. Limited to relatively low minutes off the bench early in the season, Butler stepped into a starting role down the stretch. He started the Bulls' last 14 games of the season, delivering strong averages of 14.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.9 steals while hitting more than half his threes (52.8 percent). His best performance came Apr. 9, when he posted an easily career-high 28 points on 10-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals against the Raptors. Two nights later, he grabbed 14 rebounds to accompany a 22-point performance against the Knicks -- one of his four double-doubles on the season. Butler retained his starting role in the playoffs, averaging 13.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals across 12 postseason contests. That included a 21-point, 14-rebound performance to open the Bulls' second-round series against Miami.

2011

Butler was selected with the 30th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Bulls, who deployed him for 42 games in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season. The rookie averaged 2.6 points, 1.3 rebounds, 0.3 assists and 0.3 steals in 8.5 minutes per game while contending with Chicago's crowded wing rotation. Butler's best performance came Apr. 26 against the Cavaliers, when he posted 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with four rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes. He also scored 12 points on Jan. 7 against the Hawks. Butler recorded a season-high five rebounds on two occasions. He also posted a pair of two-steal games. The Bulls finished with a 50-16 record to lead the Eastern Conference, though they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. Nonetheless, Butler was able to get a few minutes of NBA playoff experience, though he didn't record any stats other than a single personal foul.

Butler was traded to the Timberwolves last summer and arrived in Minnesota as one of the league's biggest offseason additions. After a slow start to the season, Butler soon found his groove and started putting up the numbers Fantasy owners had become accustomed to in recent years. He finished his season as the team's leader in both scoring and steals, averaging 22.2 points and 2.0 steals per game, to go along with 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists. Despite the high-level production, Butler's season will likely be remembered for his knee injury, which came a ta key point in the season. The loss of Butler was felt immediately, and the team fell from the fourth seed to the eighth seed in the West within a matter of weeks. Although the Timberwolves were ultimately able to sneak into the playoffs as the eighth seed, they were quickly dispatched by Houston in Round 1. Looking ahead, Butler will again be locked in as the primary -- or perhaps co-primary -- option on offense, as well as the defensive anchor. Owners in most formats will have to part with a top-30 pick in order to secure Butler's services, and while he doesn't have the upside of the truly elite Fantasy commodities, Butler is about as safe as they come, though it's fair question whether he'll be able to stay healthy. The 29-year-old played in only 59 games last season -- his fewest since the lockout-shortened 2011-12 campaign-- and he's missed at least 15 contests in four of the last five seasons.
Butler, who arguably had the best season of his career during the 2016-17 campaign with the Bulls, is now a member of the Timberwolves. He was especially dominant after the All-Star break, posting 22.8 points, 6.6 assists, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals across 37.7 minutes per game while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from deep. His emergence as a legitimate ballhandling threat and pseudo point guard elevated his game to new heights, increasing the number of ways he can rack up Fantasy points on any given night. While it’s unclear at the moment if that’s the role he’ll play with his new team, Jeff Teague, the Wolves’ point guard, is no slouch as a spot-up shooter. Butler even collected two triple-doubles last season and had an absolutely dominant performance against the Hornets where he dropped 52 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and only two turnovers. Due to his recent overall play, the fact that he’s slated to be on a more talented roster, and his big-game potential, Butler should be seriously considered within the top 15 picks of any Fantasy draft.
Butler was named an All-Star for the second straight season in 2015-16, posting averages of 20.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals in 67 games. While the Bulls failed to qualify for the postseason, Butler solidified his standing as one of the top two-way shooting guards in the league. Butler returns as the Bulls' unquestioned top player, but significant questions loom after Chicago added a pair of veteran guards in Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo in free agency. At age 34, Wade ranked fifth in the NBA in usage rate last season, while Rondo's propensity to dominate the ball is well documented. While both players have publicly backed Butler as the team's No. 1 option, it's fair to question how three below-average jump shooters will coexist in one backcourt. Butler shot a healthy 45.4 percent from the field last season, but converted only 31.2 percent of his three-point attempts, down from 37.8 percent in 2014-15. That number will have to improve this season for Butler's scoring production to maintain, as he figures to cede a decent portion of the offensive burden to Wade and Rondo. Butler's rebounding numbers will likely be sustainable, though with the addition of Rondo, it's difficult to imagine him topping -- let alone matching -- the career-best 4.8 assists per game he averaged last season.
Butler enters his fifth season in the NBA as an established star after an excellent 2014-15 season where he made the All-Star Team and won the NBA's Most Improved Player Award. Butler has always been known as a defensive stud, but he became a great all-around player last season as he averaged 20.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 1.1 three-pointers in 39 minutes per game. Although he played a lot of minutes, Butler was only healthy enough to play in 65 games due to an elbow injury. He also improved all of his percentages from the previous season as he shot 46 percent from the field, 83 percent from the free-throw line, and 38 percent from behind the arc. His excellent season paid off big time as he signed a five-year max contract over the summer to remain with the team. The Bulls will rely on him heavily again this year, but it's possible he sees a little less playing time under new head coach Fred Hoiberg than he did under Tom Thibodeau as Thibodeau played his starters huge minutes. Hoiberg is expected to run a more up-tempo offense this year, something that should only help Butler as he excels in the open court and at getting to the rim. When asked by Hoiberg which position he plays, Butler said he thinks of himself as a point guard, so if Rose falls prey to another injury, don't be surprised if Butler simply takes on a more prominent role handling the ball.
Many expected Jimmy Butler to make a big leap forward last season, and while his production increased, his efficiency took a big hit in the process. Butler averaged 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 39 minutes per game while playing in 67 contests. Now entering his fourth season, he'll look to improve upon his relatively unpolished offensive skill set while continuing to take on some of the toughest defensive assignments in the NBA. Thanks in large part to the mid-season trade of Luol Deng, he saw his minutes rise dramatically last season and was constantly relied upon by coach Tom Thibodeau to grind out games. With the increase in playing time, Butler increased his output, attempting 10.3 shots per game. In turn, he saw his field goal percentage fall below the 40 percent threshold. With the return of Derrick Rose and the addition of other scorers, there will be less pressure on Butler to force the issue on the offensive end. Depth issues plagued the Bulls last season and Butler was called upon to log an incredible amount of minutes for Chicago. While Butler may still be the workhorse on the wing, Thibodeau has significantly more capable options this season, including Tony Snell and European rookie Nikola Mirotic. As long as Butler continues to struggle offensively, he remains a lower-tier fantasy option unless your format values steals.

Butler, selected 30th by the Bulls in last year's draft, saw minimal action as a rookie. He had a big Summer League campaign and is projected to take the departed Ronnie Brewer's defensive spark plug role off the bench this season. Look for him to see a major spike in playing time this year.
Butler, selected 30th by the Bulls in this year’s draft, averaged 15.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals at Marquette last year. He played both forward positions in college, but his slight frame (6-8, 215) means he'll probably spend most of his time at the three in the NBA. He should spend most of this year on the bench, but an injury could clear the way for him to get some playing time.
