CHICAGO (AP) - Jimmy Butler is back in the Chicago Bulls’ lineup against the Houston Rockets after missing a game for bereavement.

Butler was averaging 21.9 points per game. Getting him back Monday night was a big boost for the Central Division leaders as they tried for their 13th win in 15 games.

Derrick Rose was also in the lineup after bruising his right hip in Saturday’s overtime victory over Boston, but Mike Dunleavy Jr. missed his second consecutive game because of a sprained right ankle.
