Out with leg injury
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan previously said Feb. 8 that Hutchison would be away from the team indefinitely to address a personal matter, but the NBA's official injury report now attributes the forward's absence to a health-related concern. The team has yet to provide an update on when Hutchison might be ready to play, but he hasn't been a part of Donovan's rotation even when at full strength.

Good two-way effort in OT win
Valentine swiped a season-high three steals Wednesday, and he did a good job of filling out other parts of the stat sheet as well. He's found himself in a legitimate rotational role this season. In his 27 appearances, the 27-year-old has averaged 7.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists.

Burden lightened in blowout win
LaVine played his lowest minutes total of his last 10 games as the Bulls blew out the Rockets. That was one of the reasons the he failed to reach 30 points for the first time in his last four games, though he continued to shoot the ball particularly well from three-point range and the free-throw line. LaVine also continued to chip in strong peripheral production, as he's averaging a career-best 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists through 30 contests this season.
