Bulls center Joakim Noah is expected to return Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.
Noah hasn't played since January 30, missing three games with plantar fasciitis. He's averaging 38.6 minutes a game on the season. I'm a bit worried that Noah is a) coming back too soon and b) going to get run into the ground by Tom Thibodeau. Hopefully, Noah is healthy enough to return and Thibodeau takes it easy on his big man.
Thibodeau said Noah is a go vs. Nuggets. Belinelli still gametime, didn't participate in shootaround. I'd guess out. #Bulls

The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors have engaged in trade discussions for a deal involving Carlos Boozer for Andrea Bargnani.
ESPN's Marc Stein broke the story, and he noted that other players with smaller contracts would have to be added to the deal to make it work. Standing in the way of a potential deal -- whether Toronto could afford to have Boozer and Gay on the team.
The Denver Post is reporting that the Denver Nuggets have expressed interest in Kevin Garnett. Unfortunately for the Nuggets, this feeling is a one way street:Through his representatives, Garnett has let it be known he has no current interest in the Nuggets.No surprise there, as the article goes on to call Denver a “fly-over city” and not a desirable destination for most...
Carlos Boozer has long been mentioned as an amnesty candidate for the Bulls, but he has had a highly productive season.
Red. Hot. Scorching. Streaking. Heat Check. Insatiable. The Denver Nuggets are all of those things, plus many more. At one point, they were 17-15 in December, and now are sitting at the 4th seed with a 32-18 record and a 22-3 home record. The Denver Nuggets are home cookin’ like no other team in the [...]The post Denver Nuggets Playing With A Hunger appeared first on The NBA Mistress.

The Denver Nuggets have a glaring need for a real presence in the post. Kevin Garnett, though a year older and slower, would definitely fill that need. According to the Denver Post, the Nuggets have reached out to the Celtics to try to strike a deal to bring Garnett to Denver, but there’s one problem. Garnett doesn’t want any part of a trade that would send him to Denver.
This shot has potential to be the number one play of the year. I feel like you could attempt this 100 times in the gym and miss it 100 times. The strange part is you wouldn't be upset that you couldn't replicate this shot. Not even once. While we dream of making trick shots in games at our local gyms, Gallo is living the dream on the biggest stage.
Nate Robinson posed the question on Instagram, “whose the worst dressed Bull.” If we are strictly going off this picture, I say you can take Joakim out of the equation. He doesn’t look bad but he should be practicing the Coco Chanel rule of removing one accessory. In this case, the only accessory. That rosary/ necklace thing is not the move.
Rip looks a little disheveled...
