Jimmy Butler Trolls Raptors Before Game 3

The Philadelphia 76ers stole home court advantage in-game two behind Jimmy Butlers 30 point, 11 rebound effort. Jimmy Butler is known for his work ethic and ability to get under a teams skin and today per Eric Koreen on twitter “Before game 1 Kawhi Leonard shot around on his home court despite team not doing it, pushing the Philadelphia 76ers shootaround back. This morning, Jimmy Butler is doing the same.” This move is on brand with Jimmy Butler’s brand expect Jimmy Butler to offer more of the same tonight as the Sixers should stick with the game plan that led to a game 2 victory.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy outlook: Game 2 Jimmy shot 10 three pointers, which was a career high. Don’t expect that volume of outside shots in-game 3, however the Philadelphia 76ers found a formula that worked on offense with Joel Embiid being under the weather. Plan for Brett Brown to stick with this pattern at home tonight.

Jimmy Butler (back) ruled out for Saturday

Jimmy Butler has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Chicago Bulls due to a back injury. Zhaire Smith and Shake Milton will pick up more minutes in this contest against Butler's former team.

Fantasy Impact

Zhaire Smith and Shake Milton are both worth a look in DFS lineups as there is only two games on Saturday. JJ Redick, TJ McConnell, Tobias Harris, and Ben Simmons beneift more than anything.

Jimmy Butler (back) is out on Monday vs Dallas

Jimmy Butler (back) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Mavs.

Fantasy Impact

Butler is said to be day-to-day with the issue so this is likely just a rest day for the Sixers star. James Ennis and TJ McConnell will see added run in his absence.

Jimmy Butler scores 25 points, fills up stat sheet against Hawks

Jimmy Butler scored 25 points on 6-of-13 shooting in 36 minutes of action on Saturday night. Butler also filled up the stat sheet, as he had six rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Butler did it all against Atlanta, which boosted his fantasy night and was sure to help fantasy owners on their championship run. Butler must remain active in all formats heading into the final stretch before the NBA playoffs, as he is an integral part of Philly’s offense and will keep producing at a high level.

Jimmy Butler ices big win Wednesday with late jumper

Jimmy Butler turned it on late once again for the Sixers on Wednesday, scoring 15 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter to help lead Philadelphia past Boston in a must-win game. His final two points iced the win for Philadelphia after he seemed to lose his dribble to Kyrie Irving, only to pick it back up and hit an 18-foot jumper to put the Sixers up by five with under five seconds to play.

Fantasy Impact

Butler hit three triples that keyed Philadelphia's comeback efforts halfway through the fourth, helping to turn a 99-90 deficit into a tie at 105. He also added four rebounds and two assists on the night. Butler has scored at least 22 in each of the Sixers' last four games (all victories) and six times in Philadelphia's nine games in the month of March. If Philadelphia is to advance deep into the postseason, Butler will need to keep scoring at a similar volume (a trend his owners certainly wouldn't mind seeing continue).
