Gibson played 73 games (55 starts) for the Bulls last season and averaged 8.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.1 blocks in 27 minutes per game. He shot 52.6 percent from the field and 69.2 percent from the charity stripe. Gibson was forced to start more than expected this season with Joakim Noah (shoulder) out for an extended time period. While Gibson was a valuable member of the Bulls, it didn't translate to big fantasy statistics. The Bulls are looking to get younger and more athletic this summer, so it's possible they could look to trade Gibson as he only has one year remaining on his current contract.
Gibson (ribs) has been shut down for the final two games of the season, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Gibson has missed the last six games with a cracked rib, and he had been considered unlikely to return during the regular season all along. The Bulls' officially being eliminated from postseason contention Sunday all but sealed Gibson's fate, and now rookie Bobby Portis and second-year forward Nikola Mirotic will be in line to see increased time in the frontcourt over the final two games. Chicago, which has also shut down Pau Gasol (knee) and E'Twaun Moore (hamstring), plays in New Orleans on Monday before finishing out at home against Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Gibson (ribs) is considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. Gibson has missed the last six games with a lingering rib injury and is expected to sit out again on Monday. Nikola Mirotic has been starting in his place and should get the call again, while both Bobby Portis and Cristiano Felicio will likely continue to see an increase in minutes as well. We should see Gibson's status updated again following the team's morning shootaround on Monday.
Gibson (ribs) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. Both Gibson and E'Twaun Moore (hamstring) will remain out Saturday as the Bulls attempt to keep their slim playoff chances alive. Coach Fred Hoiberg admitted that it's likely both players will not return this season, assuming Chicago fails to qualify for the postseason.
Gibson (ribs) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, the Chicago Tribune reports. Gibson's lingering rib issue will likely cost him a sixth straight game, but given his recent absences, the Bulls' rotation should remain relatively unchanged Saturday. Along those lines, expect Nikola Mirotic to continue to start in his place, with Bobby Portis serving as a capable alternative off the bench.
