The only blame Fred Hoiberg deserves in this Bulls mess is believing GM Gar Forman — MINNEAPOLIS - Fred Hoiberg isn't without blame. After all, the first-year Bulls coach actually believed what was coming out of the mouth of his so-called friend in general manager Gar Forman. Enough so that he actually left the comforts of Ames, Iowa, walked away from a successful basketball program which he built, and chose to ...

Adversity suddenly a bad word for a Bulls team that once again crumbles late — MINNEAPOLIS - The Bulls used to dine on adversity. Pull it off the bone, chew on it and swallow it down. Star player in street clothes for months? No problem, next man up. Three games in four nights? Heck, let's play four in five. Game moved to the roof of the arena?

As expected, the knee injury to Jimmy Butler is not as serious as first thought — MINNEAPOLIS - As expected, the Jimmy Butler knee injury was more scare than heartache, as the Bulls announced on Saturday that an MRI showed that the left knee is a strain with no structural damage. There is no timeline for Butler's return after he sustained the injury in the second quarter in the loss to ...

Jimmy Butler carted off in Denver with a left knee sprain — DENVER - Very little seems to happen well in Denver for the Bulls. If it's not losing year after year in the Pepsi Center, it's what happened Friday with 1:06 left in the first half. Jimmy Butler took to the air and was fouled hard, falling awkwardly to the ground.

Jimmy Butler welcomes heavy minutes no matter who the coach is — DENVER - Jimmy Butler doesn't want to get caught up in coach comparisons. Especially when it comes down to talking about former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau compared to first-year coach Fred Hoiberg in the minutes department. Thibodeau played Butler an average of 38.7 minutes per game the last two years and was all but crucified ...

Jimmy Butler talks injured left knee; 'Boogie' looks to pick a fight — DENVER - Jimmy Butler was officially listed as questionable for the Friday game against the Denver Nuggets, but the All-Star will be smart about the soreness in his left knee. Especially since he already lost a bet with his trainer. Butler made a friendly wager with his personal trainers that he would play in all ...

Derrick Rose is making noise with his game, but also with his voice — DENVER - There is life from Derrick Rose. And not just in the box score. Without question the numbers have been improved over the last month. The usually up- and-down Bulls point guard has found consistency in that department, finally understanding that "Attack-mode Derrick'' is a way better player than "Jump-shot Derrick.'' No, the life ...

With Jimmy Butler sidelined, the Bulls are still trying to find their way — SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Jimmy Butler lost his bet. The All-Star guard had a wager with members of his personal training staff that he would play all 82 regular-season games this season, but a lingering left knee injury suffered late in the Utah loss sidelined him on Wednesday.

With Nikola Mirotic back in the hospital, Fred Hoiberg is now unclear on the forward’s return — SACRAMENTO, Calif. - It wasn't the Luol Deng spinal tap from back in 2013, but simple Bulls surgeries tend to be an adventure. Nikola Mirotic was just the latest. The second-year forward was back in the hospital after undergoing an appendectomy, this time having a hematoma removal over the weekend.

Pau Gasol wants Bulls players to realize that selfishness is the real problem with this team — SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Talk has been very cheap with this Bulls team throughout most of the season. The coaches and players have used buzzwords like "communication'' and "discipline'' to hide what has been going on far too frequently during games. Leave it to Pau Gasol to be realistic with it.

Relax Chicago, the Bulls will get as far as they were going to get with Rose. Still a team that can get to the ECF.

Standing room only in the media closet at the Berto Center. So this is what a team's playoff funeral looks like.

Just read Deadspin. Very well done. A blog site built on satire doesn't get satire. Maybe I can e-mail a QB penis picture into them now.

RT @willbrinson: Creating a parody account for @cst_cowley would be amusing. Unfortunately it would also be redundant.
