Joakim Noah is a big reason why the Bulls have won seven of their last nine games.

And while statistics tell part of the story—Noah has recorded 13.9 points, 14.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 2.00 blocks and 1.20 steals in 35.8 minutes over his last 10 games—it’s the intangibles that separate him as one of the elite centers in the NBA. …

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Luol Deng remains eleventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players in the latest NBA All-Star Game fan balloting released Thursday.

There, I said it.

Luol Deng is a Cleveland Cavalier.

It’s not written on your All-Star ballot, and perhaps not in your heart. But it’s on the NBA’s list now. Friday he will be in that makes-you-blanch wine …

It’s a sad day for Bulls fans.

Yes, plenty of them wanted Luol Deng traded once Derrick Rose was hurt and out for the season with the possibility of a championship lost, Deng a free agent and possibly leaving after the season for a better contract or weather. Plenty of fans wanted a shot at a young player in the …

The Bulls’ hopes of having a player in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game took a bit of a hit in the latest NBA fan voting returns released Thursday.

Christmas morning is one for surprises, and starting at 11 a.m., the NBA is getting one.

No Derrick Rose, no Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce barely avoiding a suspension, Luol Deng likely out with an Achilles problem, Carmelo Anthony uncertain with a sprained ankle, Kevin Garnett calcifying.

“We’ll go in there and probably think of Game 7 for a minute,” said …

There’s ice and there’s electrical stim and there’s massage and there’s ultrasound and there’s heat and manual therapy and soft tissue and joint work and muscle relaxation and all the conventional remedies for treating injuries.

But now with Jimmy Butler Thursday on crutches after a sprained ankle during the 107-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Luol Deng in a …

Noah? Present.

Deng? Absent.

Boozer? Present.

Hinrich? Absent.

Augustin? Anyone got a play book?

Just the right time for the Bulls Thursday to be on national TNT to play the league’s hottest team, the Oklahoma City Thunder who have won 15 of the last 16 games. And that’s with only four games against Eastern Conference teams.

Anyone for watching A …

The best thing about the Bulls’ 91-90 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Friday was not Mike Dunleavy’s banked in three-pointer with 5.8 seconds left.

Though it was pretty kooky.

“When it left my hand I went, ‘This is going to bank in.’ And it did,” said Dunleavy. “I can’t say when I set out to shoot the ball I was …

Do the Bulls have any All-Stars?

Well, not the way they’ve been playing lately, you might say.

But they have some players who will be able to make a good case for the Eastern Conference team in the next month.

The NBA Thursday released the first fan balloting results for the Feb. 16 All-Star game in New Orleans. And the …
