Bulls' Taj Gibson: Will compete for starting job at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Tuesday that Gibson would compete with Nikola Mirotic and Bobby Portis for the starting job at power forward, ESPN.com's Nick Friedell reports.

Hoiberg already appears to have settled on Robin Lopez as his new starting center, but the Bulls will still need to fill another spot in the frontcourt following the offseason departure of Pau Gasol. While Gibson has seniority working in his favor, his lack of floor-stretching ability might make him a poor fit alongside Lopez, a traditional back-to-basket big man. If Hoiberg does ultimately give Gibson the starting nod, it's unlikely to translate into a 30-plus minute role, as Mirotic and Portis will both remain in the mix for regular time in the rotation. Mirotic and Portis project as higher-upside options for their scoring abilities, though Gibson's skills as a rebounder won't make him entirely devoid of fantasy value.

Bulls' Taj Gibson: Plays 73 games for Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bulls' Taj Gibson: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gibson (ribs) will be shut down for the final two games of the Bulls' season, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gibson has missed the last six games with a cracked rib, and had been considered unlikely to return during the regular season all along. The Bulls' elimination 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 last two contests. The Bulls, who have also shut down Pau Gasol (knee) and E'Twaun Moore (hamstring), play the Pelicans on Monday before finishing out their schedule at home against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Bulls' Taj Gibson: Doubtful for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taj 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.

Bulls' Taj Gibson: Out vs. Cavs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taj 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 Chicago 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.
