Let Jimmy Be Harden: Why the Bulls should run their offense through Butler

Point Noah is great and all, but with Derrick Rose out, the Bulls should run the offense through Jimmy Buckets. [OK, so this was written before Butler hurt himself in Saturday's game. If anything it underscores the loss it'd be if he's missing some time -yfbb] Since Derrick Rose has gone out with his newest knee injury, the Bulls have returned to last year's Joakim Noah centric offense. They should fight against that impulse to rely on the familiar, because this year Jimmy Butler has shown he can handle a much bigger role. In fact, even when Rose is back, it would serve the Bulls well to...

This week's Sunday NBA Playoff Seeds

How did the NBA do this week? Atlanta Hawks Atlanta's B team beat the Heat last night, and trail only by the half game behind the Warriors for the best record in the league. Riding a four game win streak, they have important games this week against MVP candidate James Harden, then a possible Eastern Conference Finals preview when the Cavs come into town Friday. Chicago Bulls The loss of Derrick Rose not only changes this season for the Bulls but there is clearly a new direction needed in terms of an athlete to build around. The Bulls declared Rose will be back in four to six weeks, but how...

With timetable, Bulls send Derrick Rose a message: It's on you

In case nobody got the message clearly enough when Bulls general manager Gar Forman announced Friday at the United Center that he expected Derrick Rose back in four to six weeks after successful knee surgery, the team issued a press release an hour later.

Bulls vs. Timberwolves final score: Short-handed Bulls grind out 96-89 victory behind Jimmy Butler

Butler scored 28 points and helped the short-handed Bulls pull out a hard-fought win over Minnesota. On a down note, Taj Gibson hurt his ankle again. With Derrick Rose on the shelf for the time being and Pau Gasol sick, the Bulls were already short-handed as is heading into their game against the Timberwolves on Friday night. Things got even worse in the first quarter when Taj Gibson exited the game with, you guessed it, another ankle injury. What followed was a performance reminiscent of the past few years, a performance featuring a lot of bricks, a lot of offensive rebounds and just...

Chicago Bulls expect Derrick Rose to return this season from knee surgery

CHICAGO – The Chicago Bulls expect Derrick Rose to return this season after having surgery to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee on Friday.

Rose return would help exorcise bad mojo

CHICAGO -- On my way into the United Center for Gar Forman’s "State of the Derrick Rose" press conference, I saw Pau Gasol walking to his white Range Rover. Given that the Chicago Bulls' shoot-around for Friday’s game against Minnesota was just beginning, it seemed like an ominous sign. But as it turned out, Gasol is just sick and Rose’s knee is in better shape than we thought after seeing Tuesday night’s apocalyptic press release.

Derrick Rose expected to return in 4-6 weeks

Bulls GM Gar Forman addressed the media (and all of us, via the magic of the internet) early Friday morning to provide an update on Derrick Rose's right knee surgery. As was the hope that had been accumulating over the past couple days (after the initial shock/despair), Rose had what sounds like a quick, clean surgery that removed the damaged part of the medial meniscus. Forman put forth an expected recovery timeline of 4-6 weeks, after which Rose will be 100%. Rose's rehab will begin tomorrow, and he may be doing on-court activities in as soon as a week. 6 weeks from today is April 3rd,...

Timeline: Derrick Rose's injury troubles

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose underwent successful knee surgery, it was announced Friday. It's the next chapter in Rose's long odyssey with knee injuries that stretches back to the 2012 NBA Playoffs. There may be some cause for hope, however, as Bulls GM Gar Forman said he expects Rose to return later this season. While Bulls fans prepare to see their homegrown superstar endure another cycle of rehab, here's a brief timeline of how we got this far.

Derrick Rose to undergo surgery Friday

It's looking like Rose will have part or all of his meniscus removed. The Bulls announced Thursday afternoon that Derrick Rose will undergo surgery on Friday: Here's the release pic.twitter.com/kIpi06GIoO — Michael O'Brien (@michaelsobrien) February 26, 2015 Meniscectomy is the removal option, although the word "repair" is also used. It still won't be known just what will have to be done until Dr. Cole gets in there, but it's looking like Rose should have the opportunity to return this season. We'll just have to wait and see what Gar says tomorrow morning.

Adidas Feeling Derrick Rose's Thorns

Derrick Rose is to have surgery for a torn meniscus, while Adidas should have read the Mayan calendar. In 2012 Adidas signed Derrick Rose to a 13 year, $185 million contract with potential growth from product sales.  At the time, this was a smart move by Adidas.  Rose was already loyal to Adidas, having released 4 signature sneakers (adizero 1, 1.5, 2, and 2.5) since 2010.  Not to mention, he had just won the MVP award for the 2010-11 season, and was the youngest player in NBA history to do so at 22 years of age. We all know the sad story of what happened next.  Rose tore his ACL during...

Bulls-Hornets Re-Watch: On Rose, The Bulls' D, and More

In the third installment of The Re-Watch, we take a look at something the Bulls don't normally do on defense, at how the Bulls will adjust to life without Rose (again), and how Lance Stephenson remains unintentionally hilarious. Before we start, I'd like to express a few thoughts on Derrick Rose. I was fortunate enough not to have watched either of his previous two injuries live as they happened. Hell, the first time Rose hurt his knee I wasn't even on Twitter, and truthfully -- I didn't know a place like Blog a Bull existed. In many ways, this injury feels like the first to me because I've...
