Bulls-Timberwolves Preview

(AP) -- Don't blame Chicago Bulls fans for thinking the worst when Jimmy Butler was being rolled off the floor in a chair after a hard fall. They've had plenty of experience watching another star suffer serious injuries.

The early diagnosis says Butler's setback isn't in that category, which is some good news for the already banged-up Bulls as they continue their trip against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

Memories of Derrick Rose tearing his ACL and then his meniscus - injuries that held the former MVP out for nearly two full seasons - surely crept into the minds of those watching Butler being wheeled off the court in Friday's 115-110 loss to Denver.
