After playing 25 minutes in seven appearances and scoring 15 points since signing with the Bulls, Jimmer played a season-high 30:35 on Monday night in place of D.J Augustin.  In that time, Fredette finished with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the floor and 2-of-2 from the free-throw line.  He also added three rebounds and two assists in the Bulls win.

Chicago is back in action on Wednesday as they end the regular season on the road against the Charlotte Bobcats.
