Bulls' Butler to miss trip with sprained big toe

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls say guard Jimmy Butler is week to week because of a sprained right big toe and will not accompany them on their six-game road trip.

Butler was injured in Monday's win over Charlotte. He is averaging 11.2 points and 4.8 rebounds.

The Bulls have won five straight after a 1-3 start. They open the trip at Denver on Thursday, followed by games at Portland, the Los Angeles Clippers, Utah, Detroit and Cleveland before hosting New Orleans on Dec. 2.
