Jimmy Butler opens preseason with point guard skills and declaration of leadership

Over the offseason, Jimmy Butler proclaimed that he was going to bring some point guard skills to this coming season. He had ample opportunity to show it in the Bulls preseason opener, with both Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich out leaving E'Twaun Moore as the starter. Moore may have brought the ball up the court on some possessions, but it was certainly Butler who initiated the offense against the Bucks preseason defense (obligatory 'it's only preseason' mention). It wasn't as if Butler displayed the purest handle, but against fellow wings he was definitely able to create space and even...

Bulls sitting several for exhibition opener

Get ready for a heavy dose of E'Twaun Moore. The Bulls begin their exhibition schedule Tuesday at the United Center against the Bucks, but don't expect to see many regulars. Beyond the injuries to Mike Dunleavy and Derrick Rose, coach Fred Hoiberg said Pau Gasol, Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson also...

Chicago Bulls preseason injury report: Gasol, Hinrich, Gibson to sit out exhibition opener

Rose (and obviously Dunleavy) already out The Bulls have a preseason game tomorrow night (I know!) and Fred Hoiberg has his first injury report. As we knew already, Dunleavy is out for a while and Rose is out until next week. But we have new information from Hoiberg after practice Monday: Taj Gibson - likely to miss the first few preseason games as he gets in game shape following offseason surgery Pau Gasol - missing hopefully just this first game for rest Kirk Hinrich - has a 'minor' toe issue In a real change from the previous administration, Hoiberg actually announced the starting...

The Chicago Bulls will be shorthanded for the preseason opener against the Milwaukee Bucks

The Chicago Bulls take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday to open the 2015 NBA preseason at United Center. Or rather, a team wearing Chicago Bulls uniforms will be playing against the Bucks tomorrow night... Hoiberg said Gasol, Hinrich and Gibson won't play vs. Bucks. Dunleavy, Rose also out. — K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) October 5, 2015 Oh. Well then. This should be an easy transition from watching the Bulls Summer League play a couple of months ago.

Hoiberg's Preliminary Team Assessment: 'sloppy'

Too many turnovers, not enough rebounds As the Bulls' first preseason game approaches (10/6: Milwaukee Bucks, 7PM CST), Fred Hoiberg has made some preliminary assessments of what he's seen during team practices. Alongside the expected fluff, Hoiberg expressed some concerns over the team learning his system. We’re turning it over way too much... That’s a big thing. You’ve got to value the possession. And we’re giving up too many offensive rebounds, which is good and bad. It means you’re getting rebounds, but you’re giving them up on the other end. Those things generally happen....

Chicago Bulls Eastern Conference competition preview: Charlotte Hornets

This month we're going to try and talk about the teams the Bulls will be competing against for Eastern Conference seeding. That's a generous criteria that'll include a lot of teams, because the East is still a big morass of mediocre. These are also meant to jibe with the SBNation NBA preview that is going on. Charlotte Hornets Last year: 33-49 (11th in Eastern Conference)'15-'16 Vegas Over/Under: 32.5 wins The Hornets (I still called them the Bobcats as recently as this week) were a popular pick to rise in the East standings last season, fueled by adding once-BaB-LoveInterest Lance...
