There will be no buckets for Jimmy Butler for three to four weeks, the Bulls announced on Tuesday.

The Bulls guard has a strained left knee, which he injured in a 115-110 loss to the Nuggets on Friday.

“Butler has begun rehabbing his injury and he will be allowed to engage in all activities as tolerated with the primary goal of maintaining his conditioning over the ensuing weeks,” the Bulls wrote in a statement.

Butler was selected as a reserve to the Eastern Conference All-Star team but will have to miss the game on Sunday.
