Chicago’s biggest enemy is the human body

Time isn’t the friend of this M.A.S.H unit known as the Chicago Bulls. There are six games left in the regular season and there are more unhealthy bodies than healthy ones. Derrick Rose (left knee rehab) is still in the “out indefinitely” category. Rose says he’s still open to playing this season, but a return […]

Luol Deng: Hurt worse than we thought

We thought Luol Deng had a sprained left wrist. We thought he was day-to-day. Turns out there’s a torn ligament in that wrist and Deng will be missing in action indefinitely. Said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau: “He’s going to be out for awhile. It’s a pain tolerance thing.” Uh oh. Added Deng: “I know it’s a bad injury, […]

Kyle Korver update

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune tweeted: “Korver has a simple bone bruise in right knee and participated in portions of Tuesday’s shootaround. Is gametime decision vs. Rockets.” And relief washes over me in an awesome wave.

That was fast: Carlos Boozer is already injured

Let the chorus of “I told you so’s” begin: Carlos Boozer is on the shelf for approximately eight weeks due to a fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his right hand.

Loul Deng: Hurting

More bad injury news for the Bulls: Luol Deng — Chicago’s primary LeBron James defender – is hurting. Again. Or still. Or whatever. Said Deng: “I don’t feel good at all. The calf strain took a lot out of me. And it’s still bothering me. I missed 12 games, but I wanted to get back into it […]

James Johnson: Talkin’ tough

Since I’ve posted lots of injury news for various Bulls players this season — Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, rookie Taj Gibson, etc. — it seems only fair to give the other rookie his due. To wit: James Johnson started and logged 25 minutes in last night’s game against the Pistons despite a partially torn plantar fascia […]

Rose is still out and Deng is hurt worse than we thought

Bulls fans should probably prepare themselves for the team’s 10th straight loss: Derrick Rose (sprained wrist) and Luol Deng (strained calf) will both miss tonight’s game against the Cavaliers. Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis) is still out too. I can’t argue the decision. Why risk your players’ health in a game that might not be winnable […]

Unfavorable schedules

Derrick Rose “probably” won’t play tonight against the Grizzlies in Memphis — and several other players missed practice yesterday – which means the Bulls will “probably” lose their eighth game in row. Barring a minor miracle. Actually, make that a major miracle. I decided to take a closer look at the Bulls schedule versus the schedules […]
