Taj Gibson may be the Bulls, at least the Bulls without Derrick Rose.
“It’s up to us to fill in the blank spots and recover for what we lost and do what we need to do,” Gibson said as with the Bulls also preparing to host the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday at the United Center in the team’s fourth preseason game. …

When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.

Following a week of training camp at the Berto Center, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau moved practice downtown to the United Center on Monday, affording his team the opportunity to spend a few hours on the court where it will open its seven-game preseason schedule on Tuesday.
