With Dwyane Wade resting in the second of back-to-back games, Jimmy Butler’s season-high 40 points led an all-around effort that pushed the Bulls to 3-1 on their six-game trip following an impressive 118-110 victory over the Lakers.

“He was attacking the basket all night long, making plays for his teammates,” (Bulls coach Fred) Hoiberg said. “We got him going early. With Dwyane out, obviously we’re going to play through Jimmy a lot. He was tired this morning. I give him credit for doing what he had to do to get himself ready. He told me before the game, ‘Coach, I’m going for 40 tonight.’ And he did it.”

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
