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 […]

Free fallin’: Heat 108, Bulls 95

ESPN’s Chris Broussard and Ric Bucher may not agree on whether Joakim Noah’s ongoing absence due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot is the costliest injury in the NBA, but the Bulls have now give up 100 or more points in 10 straight games. They’ve lost eight of those games, including the last seven […]

Joakim Noah: Sitting down for a while

Bad news — very bad news — for the Bulls: Joakim Noah will not play again until some time after the All-Star break. The reason: To rest and receive treatment on the plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Said Bulls general manager Gar Forman: “We’re shutting him down. It’s the best course of action right […]

Luol Deng is hurting…but still playing

Based solely on media attention and focus, you might think that Kobe Bryant is the only NBA player to ever play bravely with a broken finger. With the way sports writers have been gushing, I wouldn’t be surprised if Kobe’s finger won the Nobel Prize and ended up on the cover of Time magazine. (Of course, […]
