Jimmy Butler led the Chicago Bulls in playing time Friday night despite coming off the bench as a disciplinary measure handed down by coach Fred Hoiberg. The problem for the Bulls: Butler never found his game.

Butler went 1-for-13 from the field and was held to three points in a 100-88 loss to the visiting Miami Heat. “I’ll be back,” he said. “I promise I will be back. I am not worried at all.” Dwyane Wade also came off the bench for similar comments and led the Bulls with 15 points. But his efforts weren’t enough to make up for Butler’s struggles.
