As the Bulls entered the final week of this year’s preseason, the team was without Jimmy Butler (left knee contusion), Kirk Hinrich (concussion) and Joakim Noah (right groin strain) when it hosted the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.

Hinrich suffered a concussion during Friday’s victory over Indiana when he hit the back of his head on Erik Murphy’s knee.

“I’ve …

Probably someone in this stats infested sports world measures it, though I haven’t seen it yet. But the Bulls probably just completed the best ever 45-win regular season with a second round playoff loss.

Of course, they knew they’d be missing for part, and it turned out all, their best player and a former league MVP, Derrick Rose. But then …

Didn’t we just do this? Hottest team in the league on an historic winning streak in the United Center with a top MVP candidate.

This time Thursday on national TNT it’s the Knicks with 13 consecutive wins and with perhaps the hottest individual player as well in Carmelo Anthony, leading the league in scoring after five straight games of at …

Maybe Saturday’s Bulls 93-85 victory over the East leading New York Knicks wasn’t quite as good as it gets, but it was as good as it’s been this season for the Bulls.

Not only was it just the second victory over a team with a winning record. But it was the team coming off a blowout win in Miami and …

There’s no complaining this season — or shouldn’t be — about the annual November road trip starting in Phoenix Wednesday. The Bulls play just four games in the Western Conference over eight days before a final road game in Milwaukee Nov. 24. But in playing the Suns, the Bulls face a bit of a defensive quandary they haven’t quite seen …

Who says the Bulls couldn’t finish third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose? Well, they just did. Oh, right. Preseason. But the Bulls finished a good one for them with a 97-90 victory over the Central Division favored Indiana Pacers at the University of Notre Dame Friday night.

“It was great to play a really good team,” said Carlos …

Sometimes there just isn’t anything left. You can squeeze the orange for just so long, and eventually the juice is gone. No matter how much more you squeeze.

Yes, the Bulls had that wonderful Derrick Rose-less victory over the Miami Heat earlier this week. But with Friday’s 100-89 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, you are starting to get the …

The Bulls wanted to get a veteran player like Richard Hamilton for the playoffs. It looks like that’s what it might be.

Not really, as the Bulls Tuesday confirmed Hamilton had suffered just a right shoulder bruise and sprain and contusion instead of, as feared, something more serious when he collided with Roy Hibbert just over a minute into Monday’s …

It’s pretty clear now what the Bulls have to do following Friday’s dominating 114-75 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers to raise the team’s record to a league best 14-3.

They have to shut Derrick Rose down the rest of the season.

Look, what’s really the point anymore after a brilliant effort against an improving Cavs team that is actually seventh …

We don’t really celebrate the calendar year in the NBA because of the fall-through-spring season. But as we start 2012 with the Bulls much delayed home opener Sunday against the Memphis Grizzlies, here’s a look at the top 20 Bulls events of 2011.
