Butler leads Bulls past Timberwolves, 96-89

CHICAGO (AP) Derrick Rose had knee surgery Friday morning. Pau Gasol was sidelined by an illness, and Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle in the first quarter.

No problem for the Chicago Bulls, who turned to their emerging star and skilled center for a short-handed victory.

Jimmy Butler had 28 points and 12 rebounds in Chicago's 96-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, and Joakim Noah finished with 11 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a solid all-around performance.
