Chicago Bulls News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About Chicago Bulls

3/25/15: The Chicago Bulls still have an impressive team when they are all healthy, though it seems like unicorn sightings are more common over the past few years. Head coach Tom Thibodeau deserves a lot of credit for the team continually to overcome adversity and is one of the better coaches in the NBA. Of course, Thib's relationship with the front office has been rocky at best and many believe that he will not be back behind the Bulls bench next season. If that happens, according to reports, then Fred Hoiberg is the Bulls' 'top choice'. Hoiberg is the head coach at Iowa State, who were upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
3/18/15: Life without Derek Rose has been humbling for the Chicago Bulls this time around. The team is 4-6 in their last ten games and the Cleveland Cavaliers have certainly taken control of the Central Division. But beyond the perpetually injured Rose, the team has other injuries like Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah. Noah is playing, but his minutes are limited. Right now it is a game of maintenance. The Bulls would have the fourth playoff seed if the playoffs started now, and that would give them home court advantage, at least in the first round. Once everyone is healthy, though, the Bulls are an Eastern contender.
3/11/15: A lot of hearts in Chicago sank when it was announced that Derek Rose had a torn meniscus. Considering Rose's comments a few months ago about taking care of his body for a life after basketball, many figured that he would take the longer recovery route, which could avoid bone-on-bone contact and arthritis. However, Rose chose the quicker recovery method and is only expected to miss about six weeks - and be back for the playoffs. Of course, it is never easy for the Bulls since Jimmy Butler injured his elbow and also miss three to four weeks.
3/4/15: As a disclaimer, this is not a repeated post. It is all new material, though the message is the same. Bulls star Derrick Rose is out with a knee injury. This time, Rose tore his meniscus in his right knee. There are two treatments: surgery or rest. Surgery is quicker, but usually ends up in arthritis later on in life as bone scrapes bone. Rest is more painful and takes longer, but has the benefit of maintaining the tissue within the knee. Regardless, the Bulls chances of winning the East took a huge hit last Tuesday when Rose went down, and ultimately that could end head coach Tom Thibodeau's time in Chicago.
2/25/15: The Chicago Bulls are trying everything to continue to hold of the charging Cleveland Cavaliers, and that will not be easy with injuries to key players. Center Joakim Noah has a few ankle and knee issues - generally not welcome signs for basketball players. But Noah is a tough player and is still on the court. Still, head coach Tom Thibodeau wants to limit his minutes to 32 to 34 per night right now. Forward Jimmy Butler is still battling a thumb injury and is wearing a splint for the rest of the season. It may be working. He scored a combined 49 points in his last two games.
2/18/15: There are many NBA experts out there that think the Chicago Bulls could be the Eastern Conference representative in the NBA Finals this season - though that usually comes with the caveat of 'if healthy'. The fact is that the Bulls have a talented roster. They are good enough to get to the finals. However, they really had not made any real statements on the court this season. At least they had not until they won a showdown against the Cleveland Cavaliers in their final game before the All Star break. That 113-98 win may be the most important of the season so far, and could propel them through the final stretch of the regular season.
2/11/15: The Chicago Bulls continue to struggle, going only 4-6 in their last 10 games. While that would be great for the New York Knicks or Philadelphia 76ers, it could mean doom for the Bulls. The Cleveland Cavaliers have been peaking and won 12 straight before dropping to the Indiana Pacers last Friday. That means that the Bulls and Cavs are essentially tied for the top spot in the Central. In other news, the All Star Game is this weekend and that means the annual skills challenge. The slam dunk contest lost its luster years ago, but the 3-Point Challenge is still a popular event. The Bulls have a horse in the race this year with Jimmy Butler participating.
2/5/15: The Chicago Bulls have been a mediocre team for the past few weeks, but they still lead the Central Division and appear to be a lock for the playoffs again this season. They have had some pretty good campaigns over the past few years under the leadership of head coach Tom Thibodeau. However, there has been speculation that Thibodeau is on the hot seat, and a recent report claims that the relationship between the coach and the front office is 'beyond repair'. If that is true, then Thibs, who is one of the better coaches in the league, may be coaching elsewhere next season. He will have no shortage of job offers and some team will bend over backwards to get him.
1/28/15: The Chicago Bulls lead the Central Division by 4.5 games and currently are battling for the second playoff spot. However, that may not be good enough for some, as head coach Tom Thibodeau is rumored to be on the hot seat. His star player, Derrick Rose, is defending him, though. Rose gained some attention by calling out everyone on the roster for poor play last week. He later said that the poor play was not the fault of Thibodeau, but rather is on the players themselves. For the record, GM Gar Forman denies that Thibodeau is on the hot seat. A strong finish should dispel all speculation.
1/21/15: It seems like a lot of people are trying to figure out what is wrong with the Chicago Bulls lately. While they still hold a comfortable lead in the Central Division, they are only 5-5 in their last 10 games. They just seem a bit off. True, defensive wizard Joakim Noah has been out for a few games, but the concern is that there is something more going on. Many consider the Bulls the favorite to come out of the East this season and play for the NBA Championship. But they will have to get by teams like Washington, Atlanta and Cleveland first, so do not make any plane reservations just yet.
1/14/15: Chicago has not had much luck luring star free agents to the Windy City over the past few years, but they did manage to get long-time forward Pau Gasol last offseason. Gasol may be on the final legs of his career, but he can still play - and he showed that last Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks. Derrick Rose was out (again) with knee soreness and Jimmy Butler was not hitting much, so Gasol took over the game and put up 46 points and 18 rebounds in the 95-87 win. It was the first time that a Bull had broken 40/15 since Michael Jordan went for 69/18 against Cleveland in 1989.
1/7/15: The Bulls have taken advantage of the return of Derrick Rose plus the absence of LeBron James to put some distance between themselves and the Cleveland Cavaliers. While there has always been a lot of publicity about how the Cavs should be fun to watch, it is really the Bulls that are playing an exciting brand of basketball. Take New Year's Day, for example. Chicago blocked 18 shots by the Denver Nuggets, but punctuated the game with alley-oops and throwback jams. That is a lot more fun than watching LeBron hobble around on broken wheels, and gets more wins, as well.
12/3/14: The Bulls have been without star Derrick Rose for much of the season, even drawing the ire of Bulls fans and head coach Tom Thibideau. But the team has other injuries, including to Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah. Throughout all of this, the Bulls are in first place in the Central Division and among the top teams in the East. But good news may be on the way as Rose is confident that he is getting healthier that he will be able to play more games coming up. The Bulls are coming off a successful seven game road trip, made necessary by the annual circus coming to town and taking over the United Center.
11/19/14: The Bulls continue to be among the better teams in the NBA this season, piling up wins wherever they play. But all is not happy in Chicagland after star Derrick Rose admitted that he sits out games in order to save his body for life after basketball. While fans and media have buried him for his thoughts, he does have a responsibility to himself and he has suffered major injuries to his legs. Additionally, as long as he is ready for the playoffs in six months or so, then no one should really be too worried.
11/12/14: It looks like Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is finally finished with the Derrick Rose injury bug. Rose, of course, has missed most of the last two seasons with injuries and sprained his ankles at the start of this season. But Thib has not plans to rest him. He believes that if Rose can play then he should play. That may aggravate the injury, but it sounds like Thib is tired of not having his best player on the court. Of course, the East looks to be a two team race between the Bulls and the Cavs, so it may be better to have Rose rest now so he can be at full level when the playoffs come around.
11/5/14: The Bulls have been kind of the forgotten team in the East. Cleveland got the publicity for landing LeBron in the offseason. Miami has storylines of how they will do without LeBron, and the Lakers are just a train wreck that lends itself to good copy. But the Bulls got Derrick Rose back (who looked sensational in international play over the summer) and added Pau Gasol in the offseason. Their new-look Bulls did not disappoint on opening night as the Bulls pounded the Knicks 104-80. Chicago has not been in many contender conversations so far, but if opening night is any indication, then maybe they should be.
5/18/12 Two disappointing playoff exits in a row for the Chicago Bulls fails to demonstrate the true potential of the team, and thus the Chicago Bulls will look to return in the 2012-2013 NBA season with a vengeance. Costly injuries in this year's postseason to Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, arguably the two most important players on the team, were clearly too much for the Bulls to overcome in their first round series against the Sixers. The Bulls hope that Rose will be fully recovered and back to 100% next season as they look to compete once again and make the Finals run that has so eluded them the last two years.
5/10/12: In Game 3 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers, Joakim Noah suffered an ankle injury and 76ers fans rejoiced. To add insult to injury, literally, the Chicago Bulls squandered a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter due to terrible shooting and the 76ers took a 2 -1 series lead. Carlos Boozer played solidly in Game 4 without his frontcourt mate, but poor team defense and excessive fouls led to a third victory for the 76ers. Noting the Chicago Bulls needed a spark on offense without both Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah on the floor for Game 5, Luol Deng scored 24 points and the Chicago Bulls rallied at home with an aggressive style of play highlighted by the scrum between Taj Gibson and Elton Brand. That aggression and the hope of Joakim Noah's return for Game 6 gives Chicago Bulls fans belief that their team's post-season is not over yet!
5/11/12 The loss of star point guard Derrick Rose and forward Joakim Noah proved to be too much to overcome for the Chicago Bulls, as they lost 79-78 to the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 6 to end their season. With a lead late in the 4th quarter, two key missed free throws by Omer Asik doomed the Bulls and led to the two game-winning free throws from the Sixers' Andre Iguodala. The Bulls now own the distinction of the being only the 5th No. 1 seed in NBA history to lose in the first round of the playoffs.
Were the season-long injuries a foreshadowing of the season-ending injury Derrick Rose suffered at the end of Game 1 vs. the Philadelphia 76ers? That is a question Bulls fans would rather ignore. Surely it was devastating to lose the reigning NBA MVP, but the playoffs must go on. The Bulls actually faired well during the regular season without Derrick Rose, posting an 18
