Bulls_vs_bucks_4b72
We've talked about ti before, but the Chicago Bulls are the poster children for this site.  They have had more injuries than just about any other NBA team this season.  Luol Deng is another Bulls' player to add to the list of time lost due to injuries.  Last night, he sat out the Bulls game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a strained hamstring.According to Vaughn McLure of the Chicago Tribune, Deng is listed as day-to-day, but the Bulls' forward would not comment on how long he thought it would be before he returned to the court.  This is the first time injuries have kept Deng out of an entire game this season, but he has certainly dealt with his fair share of bumps and bruises.The Bulls, despite all the injuries they've dealt with, have managed to maintain a solid record in the Eastern Conference.  And with Derrick Rose slated to return in the coming weeks, the team could surge toward the playoffs.  As it stands now, the Bulls are 23-16 and in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.Deng has been a key player for Chicago in Rose's absence.  This season he has averaged 17.4 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game.  Those numbers are slightly up from his career averages of 16.1 and 6.4.

Jimmy Butler starts for Luol Deng, scores 18 and grabs eight rebounds

Jimmy Butler filled in with Luol Deng-esque line at small forward Saturdy: 18 points (5-13 FG, 8-8 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and three steals. Deng is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, so Butler's extended role isn't likely to last. The Bulls' second-year player can be had in just about every league (1 percent owned in Yahoo).

Bulls: Taj Boozer, a great Power Forward

A superstar power forward will play an average of forty minutes per game during the regular season, forty-four minutes a game during the playoffs, and forty-eight minutes under coach Thibs.   Forty-eight minutes is exactly what Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson give the Bulls every night.  In no world is Carlos Boozer a superstar.  His jumper seems to miss in big games and big spots...

Look for him to continue starting while Deng is out.  Butler is owned in 2 percent of Yahoo leagues. He...

Joakim Noah whines about Kevin Garnett, again

After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett.

Just trying to throw elbows...

Grizzlies-Bulls Preview

The Memphis Grizzlies got the best of the Chicago Bulls in a low-scoring affair last month. Points could be even harder to come by this time around if Zach Randolph and Luol Deng can't play.

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bulls 1/18

The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't. Tonight's underrated stat of the night...

Belinelli's shot lifts Bulls in OT

BOSTON -- Marco Belinelli quickly went from goat to hero in the closing seconds of overtime Friday night, giving the Chicago Bulls their second road OT win in a span of three nights.
