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. Three years (in a row injuries for the team), two years, whatever it may be, there’s not too much we can really do about it. Injuries happen. We’re athletes, we push our bodies to …

One of my favorite Western movies is an 80’s campy film, Silverado, with a lot of stars who were not stars yet. There’s a wonderfully understated scene in which the bad guy sheriff played by Brian Dennehy shows up at the site of a jailbreak where the good guys got away and took out a few more of his corrupt …

The Bulls Friday got an encouraging message about Derrick Rose for a change, successful knee surgery that could have him back on the basketball court before the end of the regular season. Then Rose encouraged his backcourt teammate, Jimmy Butler, and it made all the difference in a 96-89 Bulls victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Butler said he spoke with …

Derrick Rose is bac…

Oh right, we’ve done that one before. And before and before.

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 …

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.

Surgery …

It was no surprise one of the early wire service reports Monday after the Bulls 87-71 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks began, “Ian Snell scored 20 points, Nikola Mirotic had 16 points and a career high 14 rebounds, and the surging Chicago Bulls…”

I know, I know. Who is that guy?

It couldn’t be the Tony Snell we know, timidly …

The Bulls saw the Suns Saturday night in the United Center. The question is with a 112-107 victory have the Bulls started to see the light.

“I look at the standings,” said Pau Gasol, who led the Bulls with 22 points and 14 rebounds and hit the effective clincher, a running half hook for a four-point lead with 31 seconds …

You’ve heard the questions and the lament as Taj Gibson dropped balls, wasn’t always able to finish at the rim, played well, but, well, not as well as expected. His scoring well down. Must be pouting because he’s not starting, went one theory. Upset with trade rumors went another. Jealous of contracts other players are getting.

Gibson heard it all …
