Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says Butler felt better when he warmed up before the game but "is not quite there." Butler also missed the Bulls' 93-79 loss at Miami on Sunday.
Butler, in his second season out of Marquette, is averaging 12.4 points per game. He had 12 points and 13 rebounds in the Bulls' 100-85 win over the Hawks on Feb. 11 in Chicago.
