Joakim Noah returns to 'point center' role

CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah was back in his comfort zone on Friday night. Without Derrick Rose (knee), Pau Gasol (illness) and Taj Gibson going down with an ankle injury after just nine minutes, the remaining Bulls had to pull together and do a little more. For Noah, that meant he was back in a familiar role as a "point center," a role he played extremely well over the last two years without Rose on the floor. With Noah back at the high post, he looked more confident on the floor racking up 11 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a 96-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Butler not letting injured thumb slow him

CHICAGO -- Taj Gibson isn't the only Chicago Bull playing through pain this season. All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler, who sprained his left thumb in an Oct. 19 preseason game, has been playing with a protective tape splint on the thumb all season. And it's his ability to push through the pain that has helped inspire Gibson, who revealed Saturday that he's been dealing with a ligament tear in his left hand for a month, to continue to play. "I look at Jimmy," Gibson said.

Preview: Bucks vs. Bulls

Chicago lost at Detroit on Friday but bounced back with a 112-107 home-court victory over Phoenix on Saturday. Taj Gibson came off the bench to spark a key fourth-quarter run and finished with 12 points and four rebounds.

Don't trade Taj Gibson, the Bulls' Tenacinator

They'll need him for the playoff run. The State Farm National Bureau of Assists is an All-Star team. Whether you're on the east or the west, the agents are here to assist on StateFarm.com. Taj Gibson's name has come up in trade rumors, but the Bulls would be nuts to trade him. Despite seemingly having a down season, Tajy-woo is putting up roughly the same numbers he's always done. Yes, at times, he's been a bit of black hole on the block and his gimpy ankles are always a cause for concern. However, if the Bulls are going to have any hope of winning the championship they have designs on...
