The Bulls lost a game Friday, but they may have found another answer to a longer season.

Bulls rookie Doug McDermott had his best game of the season with a career high 16 points, 12 in a second quarter blitz that was the Bulls best sustained offensive sequence of the game. The Bulls would lose 98-84 to the Indiana Pacers, …

It had to be a movie. Indiana kid; not thought of that highly, never much gets into the games. Works and works and works. Gains the admiration of everyone, but it seems for nothing. So he works harder. Then the big guys get hurt and they look down the bench and have tried just about everyone else. So they tell …

You’re the Bulls and you’re coming down the stretch Tuesday against the team that knocked you out of the playoffs last season and seems to be a likely first round playoff opponent this season. You’re blowing a 10-point lead with just under five minutes left and you need guys to step up and make big plays with the pressure increasing.…

So whom did the Bulls upset?

“What can we say?” shrugged Jimmy Butler Tuesday morning as the Bulls prepared to play the Washington Wizards. “It happens.

So it’s not exactly right away, but Bulls general manager Gar Forman confirmed Friday morning after surgery that the meniscus procedure for Rose was successful and likely would involve a four-to-six week recovering period.

“It was arthroscopic out patient surgery, so Derrick at this time …

The Bulls Wednesday got their latest look at life without Derrick Rose, and it wasn’t particularly lively in a tedious 98-86 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

“We all were affected by it,” admitted Pau Gasol, who had his league leading 38th double/double with 25 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks in an 11th loss this season to a team well …

Yes, Derrick Rose is injured once again and facing a third knee surgery since May 2012. But, after all, the Bulls had two All-Stars this season not named Derrick Rose. They have a point guard who a few years ago averaged 19.6 per game starting and is the team’s best three point shooter. They have two reserve point guards, one …

Derrick Rose is having surgery again.

Call it the six most feared words for Rose, the Bulls, their fans and the NBA community.

The Bulls’ media release Tuesday night arrived, once again with stunning disappointment and despair:

“Derrick Rose reported today with right knee pain. An exam and subsequent MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear of the right knee.
