It sounds as though Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson are very close to returning to the Chicago Bulls lineup. Butler and Gibson went through all phases of practice on Tuesday and are close to playing. Gibson has dealt with several ankle sprains while Butler injured his elbow.
Meanwhile, Derrick Rose, who’s recovering from another knee injury, is “on schedule, maybe even slightly ahead,”according to Tom Thibodeau. This is currently the start of the third week of a 4-6 week recovery for Rose.
This is obviously very positive news for the Bulls, who are now in the #4 spot in the Eastern Conference, just .5 games behind the Raptors and .5 ahead of the Wizards.
