Gibson scored 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 102-91 loss to the Pistons. It was his eighth double-double of the season, barely, but four of them have come in the last seven games. Over that stretch, Gibson is averaging 12.6 points, 8.3 boards and 1.0 blocks, and he's well on his way to setting a new career high in rebounding, topping the 7.5 boards per game he set as a rookie in 2009-10.
Gibson erupted for 23 points (10-13 FG, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 40 minutes in Friday's 111-105 win over the Cavaliers. Gibson still holds a reputation as a defense-first player, but he's shown more dimensions to his game since claiming a starting role out of training camp. The power forward has been particularly hot over his last six contests, averaging 14.0 points to go with 8.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 block across 32.0 minutes per game while shooting a fantastic 62.1 percent from the floor. He should be kept in the lineup in just about every season-long format while he continues to sizzle.
Gibson posted 12 points (6-11 FG), 10 rebounds and four assists across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 110-107 loss to the Nuggets. The four assists were a season high for Gibson, whose fantasy value lies almost exclusively in his point and rebound production. The scoring totals in particular are rarely impressive for Gibson, but he's been remarkably steady so far this season, with no fewer than eight points in any of his 15 contests.
Gibson generated 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Sunday's 118-110 win over the Lakers. Though Nikola Mirotic came through with 15 points and 15 rebounds of his own while starting at small forward in the absence of Dwyane Wade (rest), Gibson isn't in any danger of surrendering his role as the top unit's power forward. While he did turn the ball over a season-high six times Sunday, Gibson has otherwise been excellent as a rebounder and interior scorer this season. He's averaging 11.8 points to go with a career-high 8.0 boards in 28.2 minutes per game through his first 14 contests.
Gibson totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds and two blocks across 30 minutes in Tuesday's 113-88 win over the Trail Blazers. Gibson finished with the fewest shot attempts of any of the Bulls' starters, but thanks to some efficient shooting from the charity stripe, he was able to claim his fourth double-double in 11 games. The veteran rarely posts standout numbers on any given night, but his solid contributions in points, rebounds, blocks and field-goal percentage make him a worthy roster piece in most fantasy leagues.
