Jimmy Butler (back) sitting for 76ers in season finale
Philadelphia 76ers guard/forward Jimmy Butler (tight lower back) will not play in the final game of the regular seaosn on Wednesday versus the Chicago Bulls.
The 76ers are locked into the third seed in the Eastern Conference, so they're resting their entire starting five for tonight's matchup. Jonathon Simmons and Zhaire Smith should see a boost.
Butler averaged 18.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.9 triples in 55 games for the 76ers this season.
