Derrick Rose takes first contact in practice since Feb. 27 surgery, but still no timetable set — It was the next step for Derrick Rose on Monday. A big one at that. According to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, his point guard took contact in practice for the first time since he underwent surgery on his right knee back on Feb. 27.

Could the Bulls actually be a better playoff team without Derrick Rose? — Not a player in that Bulls locker room would argue that they are a better team without Derrick Rose on the floor. What they are without him, however, is different. With the point guard still sidelined after Feb. 27 right knee surgery, there's currently not a Bulls player that commands the ball like Rose does ...

Joakim Noah says Lil Durk's manager was with him to discuss anti-violence campaign — Posted: 03/28/2015, 11:28pm | Joe Cowley Basketball seemed to be second on Joakim Noah's mind Saturday night.

Nikola Mirotic agrees that he's not the typical NBA rookie — For all the naysayers that feel Nikola Mirotic shouldn't be a candidate for Rookie of the Year because of his Spanish League experience? The 6-foot-10 Bulls big man actually agrees with you. "Maybe because I played three and four years total [in the Spanish League] too, I don't know,'' Mirotic said Saturday, after the Bulls ...

Tom Thibodeau still looking for closing time — If it was up to Tom Thibodeau, he would have his closing five at this point in the regular season.

Bulls top Raptors; Derrick Rose could return in 1-2 weeks — Posted: 03/25/2015, 11:30pm | Joe Cowley TORONTO - There was at least a bit more optimism from Derrick Rose on Wednesday. Asked if he thought he would be back this season after undergoing surgery on his right knee on Feb. 27, the Bulls guard said, ''Oh, yeah, I'm not worried about that.'' When?

To flop or not to flop? That is the question surrounding Nikola Mirotic — TORONTO - Rookies aren't supposed to get star treatment when it comes to getting to the free throw line.
