You don’t get to jump up from No. 29, but it wasn’t a bad night for the Bulls in Wednesday’s NBA Draft Lottery.

The New Orleans Hornets hit the jackpot by jumping up from No. 4 and will get the chance to select Chicagoan Anthony Davis, the 6-10 center from the University of Kentucky.

Davis is regarded as a potential …

Not only was the surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in Derrick Rose’s left knee a success, the Bulls head team physician believes last season’s NBA MVP is very capable of returning to his pre-injury level of play.

Dr. Brian Cole was joined by Bulls general manager Gar Forman and athletic trainer Fred Tedeschi to discuss Rose’s surgery at …

In the end for the Bulls Thursday and for the 2011-12 season, it was a game they weren’t supposed to win that they left shocked they lost.

Sort of the way this whole season went.

The Bulls had lost Derrick Rose, were still without Joakim Noah, had Taj Gibson playing through a sprained ankle, saw Luol Deng leave early in …

Maybe this star crossed Bulls season, played so much without its stars, could not have ended any other way Thursday than with the Bulls letting a three-point lead with 25.8 seconds left disintegrate in a maze of missed opportunities, questionable circumstances and numbing decisions.

The result was a stunning 79-78 Philadelphia 76ers win with Andre Iguodala, a 45 percent fourth …

It seems fashionable lately to not care much about the Bulls. Yes, they are trailing the Philadelphia 76ers just 3-2 in the opening playoff series with Game 6 in Philadelphia Thursday (6:00 p.m. CT | CSN & NBA TV | ESPN 1000 AM).

But the notion is without Derrick Rose, gone for the playoffs with a torn ACL and Joakim …

Though Joakim Noah’s return from a badly sprained left ankle isn’t imminent, the Bulls center expressed optimism following Tuesday’s Game 5 victory in Chicago that he could be ready in time for Game 6 Thursday in Philadelphia.

“I’m feeling better,” Noah told Chuck Swirsky on BullsTV. “Just trying to get out there for the next game. I feel like we …

So after all that–losing Derrick Rose to that catastrophic knee injury in Game 1, losing Joakim Noah to that horrendous sprained ankle in Game 3, and then with Taj Gibson limping to the locker room Tuesday in Game 5 with his own sprained ankle, after the team filing a missing persons report on Richard Hamilton, after it appeared the Bulls …

And then there was one.

Perhaps just one game left in this most remarkable and unusual — if not ultimately fulfilling — Bulls season ever. The Bulls after Sunday’s 89-82 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers trail 3-1 in the opening round playoff series. Game 5 is 8:30 p.m. CT Tuesday in Chicago.

Cue the NBA music, perhaps a dirge for …
