Bulls have not guaranteed Pau Gasol a starting job
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Though the Bulls made him their marquee addition this offseason, the Chicago Sun-Times reports Tuesday the team has made no guarantees about Pau Gasol's role.

Gasol, who has started all but 13 of his NBA games in his 14 seasons, has not been guaranteed a starting spot for the Bulls this season. He joins a crowded frontcourt that already features Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, as well as fellow additions Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic. Gasol will likely vie for a starting spot with Gibson, but should see time at power forward and center.

Gasol comes to the Bulls on a three-year deal, after averaging 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game in 60 appearances -- all starts -- with the Lakers last season.

Report: Taj Gibson likely to start over Carlos Boozer next season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bulls forward Taj Gibson was told by the coaching staff that he should start preparing this offseason to be a starter in 2014-15, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Gibson will likely take over for Carlos Boozer at power forward. He made six starts at power forward, averaging 20.6 points and 9.7 rebounds per contest.

"I mean, this will be exciting," Gibson said. "This is what I've always thought about. When I started [six games] for Boozer when he was hurt during the season, I just know how excited I was, how good it felt to come to the arena."

The 28-year-old suffered a left ankle injury in an elimination game against the Bulls in late April and is in his final week of rehab. Gibson should be ready for the start of next season.

Ankle injury ends Taj Gibson's season
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bulls forward Taj Gibson's season came to an end a few minutes before his teammate's Tuesday, in an elimination loss to the Wizards.

Gibson was forced out of the game in the fourth quarter after rolling his ankle trying to challenge a shot, and he was unable to return. X-rays on the ankle came back negative, and it is unlikely to be an issue following the offseason.

Gibson finished Tuesday's game with 12 points and four rebounds, and ultimately averaged 18.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game in the five-game loss to the Wizards. This came off the best season of his career, where he averaged 13.0 points and 6.8 rebounds per game while appearing in all 82.
