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 …

Is the Bulls’ 83-82 home loss Monday to the Orlando Magic time to panic?
Perhaps not, but it may be a quarter to.
“It’s not pretty right now,” acknowledged Mike Dunleavy, who in some respects produced an illustration of the team’s recent plight with a half court three pointer at the buzzer that left the Bulls a point away. “We’re …

Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich is a game-time decision with back stiffness for Monday’s game against the Orlando Magic.
Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said Hinrich did not participate in the team’s morning shootaround at the United Center. He also missed Saturday’s game against Toronto.
“He’s feeling a little better,” said Thibodeau of Hinrich. “But he didn’t do anything this morning …

We interrupt this bawdy bratwurst celebration to return to the reality of the Bulls season, which continued to break down Saturday in a 99-77 home loss to the Toronto Raptors.
That made it 10 losses in the last 13 games, basically since the start of the Western Conference trip when the Bulls lost Derrick Rose for the season. The Bulls …

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.

There was perhaps one offensive possession for the Bulls Wednesday in their 83-78 loss to the New York Knicks that encapsulated the frustration and ineffectiveness that has been this discouraging season.
The Bulls with a little help from their equally underperforming colleagues in short pants from New York had tied the game at 74 with 3:38 left after trailing by …

Has it come to the point already where the Bulls are playing spoiler?
It looked a bit that way Tuesday as the Bulls lost at home 78-74 to the Milwaukee Bucks, who seemed well on their way to a top lottery draft pick with the poorest record in the Eastern Conference.
But it’s not the first time the Bulls may …

How ‘bout that Taj Gibson!
The Bulls forward starting for injured Luol Deng—yes, another one bites the dust—added to the best-in-his-career season Saturday with 21 points and 10 rebounds against the Detroit Pistons. Gibson is averaging 21.4 points and 8.4 rebounds on 61 percent shooting the last five games.
The rest of the starting five?
“We sucked tonight,” explained Joakim …

Luol Deng always has been a man, a United Nations Refuge Humanitarian of the Year award winner, the NBA’s Sportsmanship award winner, an ICON role model award from a major entertainment publication and various community service commendations.
Now Deng has to be, “the Man,” that much identified, if somewhat of a contradictory designation in a team sport.
“It’s something I’ve …

Well, at least they didn’t have to go by bus.
Then it really would have been a zoo compared to the bizarre circus the Bulls just endured over the last two weeks.
The Bulls Saturday concluded their annual November road trip, almost 7,000 miles through the Rockies, Derrick Rose’s second season-ending injury, which left a much greater mountain to climb, …
