SHARE Video: Jimmy Butler in good spirits after elbow injury

Chicago Bulls star Jimmy Butler was in good spirits Tuesday while addressing the elbow injury that will sideline him for three to six weeks.

“When I came off the screen I was trying to get my arm around and kind of leaned in, and hit my elbow out of place,” Butler said. “It wasn’t a good feeling at all.”

Asked to describe what the injury felt like, Butler smiled and jokingly asked “Want me to show you? … It hurt.”
