The Bulls haven’t been kicked out of the playoffs or had their team shut down quite yet, but it’s perhaps getting dangerously close.

The Bulls Monday are in Toronto with Pau Gasol back in Chicago with a right knee swollen. Derrick Rose remains doubtful to play with a groin strain, though Jimmy Butler could return after missing 15 of the …

It’s not difficult to find out what happened. The Bulls Thursday lost 109-101 to the San Antonio Spurs, falling to 32-31 and into ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

The most common explanation was, in addition to the missing players with Joakim Noah lost for the season and Jimmy Butler out with a knee injury, though not serious and expected …

The Bulls Thursday visit the “rest” home of the NBA, sleepy San Antonio, for the national TNT game with the San Antonio Spurs.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg after Saturday’s 108-100 victory over the Houston Rockets was considering the team’s effective play in a near end to end victory.

Taj Gibson, who was the only Bulls player not to miss a game in yet another injury marred season, Wednesday had to sit out with a hamstring strain he suffered in Tuesday’s loss in Miami.

There are certain numbers in sports you don’t forget.

There’s 100 for basketball, 714, 56 and 60 in baseball, and also 42. Obviously, 23 in the NBA and 99 in hockey. And now 67.5 for the Bulls, which was the historic shooting percentage they gave up Tuesday in a 129-111 loss to the Miami Heat.

It not only was the …

The Bulls need a super Tuesday perhaps as much as Bernie Sanders and Marco Rubio.

They may have about as much chance the way things have primarily gone for the Bulls in this NBA season.

“The big thing, hopefully, is getting our guys back, and if we do that, it’s going out there and…,” paused Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg Monday …
