Wizards-Bulls Preview

(AP) -- With their former MVP sidelined at least a month and a key reserve day to day, the Chicago Bulls are now prepared to potentially be minus their leading scorer for the immediate future.

Looking to end their home struggles versus Washington, the Bulls could be without All-Star Jimmy Butler on Tuesday night as they try to extend the Wizards' season-high road skid to eight games.

Two days after Derrick Rose underwent knee surgery that will keep him out 4-6 weeks and backup Taj Gibson sprained his ankle later that evening in a seven-point win over Minnesota, Butler hyperextended his left elbow in Sunday's 96-86 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
