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 …

Yes, Derrick Rose is injured once again and facing a third knee surgery since May 2012. But, after all, the Bulls had two All-Stars this season not named Derrick Rose. They have a point guard who a few years ago averaged 19.6 per game starting and is the team’s best three point shooter. They have two reserve point guards, one …

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?

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 …

There was some very good news for the Bulls Friday in their 100-91 loss to the Detroit Pistons, their 10th loss this season to a sub.-500 team with eight of them to teams at least 10 games below. 500.

None of those teams will be in the playoffs.

Yes, you better laugh after this one. Or you’ll cry.

The Bulls, …

It was another tough night for American exceptionalism Friday in Brooklyn.

A team of first and second year NBA international players, including Bulls rookie Nikola Mirotic with a game high four three pointers, defeated a team of similar U.S. players 121-112 in the annual All-Star weekend rookies and sophomores game, now known as Rising Stars.

“I was trying to play …

Derrick Rose sliced and diced, he slashed and dashed. The warmth from the community covered him like a familiar blanket in the verbal salutes. The Bulls Thursday on national TNT dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-98, and if it wasn’t exactly like old times, it sure seemed a lot like it and felt awfully good for the Bulls.

“When I’m out …

The Bulls are back! Well, perhaps that may be a bit premature given how they endured in New Orleans after Anthony Davis was injured and survived in Orlando because a young team with an interim coach panicked. And then Tuesday the Bulls pulled away from a deteriorating Sacramento Kings team apparently within days of playing for its third coach this …

The Bulls Sunday with a strong start defeated the Orlando Magic…No, wait! The Bulls Sunday blew a 16-point lead and lost to the Orlando Magic..No, wait! The Bulls Sunday went on a 7-0 run in the last 32.6 seconds to defeat the Orlando Magic…No, wait. Yes, they actually did!

As difficult as it was to believe as to record, the …
