Dwyane Wade doubtful to play vs. Celtics on Thursday

Dwyane Wade didn't attend the Bulls' morning shootaround Thursday because of illness and is doubtful to play against the Celtics in the team's finale before the All-Star break.

Wade also has missed the past two games with a right wrist contusion, so the surprise would be if the veteran guard does play.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said Jimmy Butler has had no issues with his right heel since returning for Tuesday's victory over the Toronto Raptors, which snapped a three-game skid. Nikola Mirotic also is on track to return from missing two games with back spasms.

Paul Zipser remains out with left ankle tendinitis.

The Celtics have won 11 of 12 games entering Thursday.
