The Memphis Grizzlies are the Bulls’ kind of Western Conference team. They don’t score much or shoot well and can’t make threes. They like to run down the clock until they have to force up a contested shot, but they’re willing to give you a shot of another sort. Yeah, they can play those guys.

And the Bulls did Monday, …

It turns out Richard Hamilton tore his plantar fascia in his left foot late in the third quarter of the Bulls Saturday night win over the 76ers, according to Bulls sources.

But that’s sort of the good news.

Plantar fasciitis, the painful inflammation on the bottom of the foot, can last months. At times, treatment will include a tear so …

Yes, it was Halloween night. Joakim Noah was wearing his stocking cap pulled down low over his ears as he sat in the sweltering Bulls locker room after the team’s gritty (we’ll hear that a lot this season) 93-87 opening night victory over the Sacramento Kings. Noah’s colorful pants hung baggy and loose, though it all was no costume. Just …

1. New Orleans: Anthony Davis, Kentucky. There’s been so little discussion about Davis because he’s the consensus No. 1, if not personally exciting. When Rose was top pick there still was debate about whether the pick would be Michael Beasley. When LeBron was No. 1, there was discussion about LeBron because many thought he was the king of England. Davis …

The Bulls clearly don’t believe they can lose to the Toronto Raptors. And try as the Bulls might Saturday in being outrebounded, outshot and generally outplayed, the Bulls were right.

They defeated the Raptors 102-101 in overtime for the second time in four days despite trailing badly much of the game and in the fourth quarter both times before Luol …

Basketball is a pretty simple game. Figure your team is tired, trailing by eight with about 10 minutes left, a little underwhelmed by the opposition and still without the league MVP and its starting backcourt while playing a league most 26th road game.

So you dig in a bit on defense. And hope John Lucas III and Kyle Korver can …

It hadn’t been a great night for Taj Gibson and the men of the Bulls Bench Mob, giving up an early 13-point lead the starters had created against the Toronto Raptors Saturday in the United Center.

The game, featuring two teams playing their fifth game in six nights, which about everyone does in the NBA these days, had emulsified into …

I’d grade the Bulls draft pretty well, though incomplete for now given we won’t know for a few years what they have in Nikola Mirotic, the 6-10 scoring forward from Montenegro whom the Bulls acquired for their Nos. 28 and 43 picks.

So they add for their roster just Marquette’s Jimmy Butler, a rugged big/guard small forward defender.

And the …

Carlos Boozer came out of the Bulls locker room long after Monday’s 103-95 loss to the Atlanta Hawks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals walking slowly and limping on his turf toe injury.

“The toe hurt a lot,” acknowledged Boozer, who had a respectable 14 points and eight assists. “It loosened up as the game went along. I …

Rasual Butler, a veteran shooting guard waived this week by the Clippers, will be signed by the Bulls, league sources confirmed Wednesday.

Butler, a 6-7 nine year NBA veteran, is expected to sign a contract for the rest of the season and join the Bulls in Orlando Thursday in time for Friday’s game with the Magic.

Although Butler averaged 11.9 …
