Bulls' Taj Gibson: Game-time decision Friday vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) took part in practice Thursday, but is considered a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Hawks, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

Gibson was held out of Tuesday's matchup with the Mavericks, as well as the team's subsequent few practices, as the Bulls wanted to give him a better opportunity to rest and recover completely from his lingering ankle soreness. While it's expected Gibson will be able to play Friday, the Bulls are still planning to have him go through warmups first to test out the ankle before giving a final word on his availability, so we might not know if he'll be given the green light until just before tip-off. For now, however, he's trending in the right direction.

Bulls' Dwyane Wade: Expects to play both ends of back-to-back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wade is expected to play both ends of the Bulls' upcoming back-to-back set Friday and Saturday, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

To date, Wade has been held out of one half of most back-to-backs, but coach Fred Hoiberg said the veteran is planning to play both Friday in Atlanta and Saturday against the Kings. After a strong month of December, Wade has struggled a bit in January, shooting just 38.9 percent from the floor over the last six contests.

Bulls' Taj Gibson: Expects to play Friday vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson (ankle) was held out of Wednesday's practice, but expects to play in Friday's game against the Hawks, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gibson missed Tuesday's matchup with the Mavericks because of a sore ankle and despite also being held out for Wednesday's practice, the Suns are labeling it as a non-issue and he should be good to go moving forward. He's fully expected to play Friday after added time off to rest, but he should still be considered questionable until a final word on his availability comes later this week. Gibson should jump back into the starting lineup, taking some minutes away from guys like Nikola Mirotic and Doug McDermott.

Bulls' Paul Zipser: Posts five points in second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zipser started at power forward and turned in five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds across 19 minutes in a 99-98 loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Zipser was making his third start in four games, this time filling in for Taj Gibson, who is nursing a sore ankle. It's possible that Gibson could miss more time, but Zipser doesn't look like he'll be the main beneficiary, even if he continues to start. He's seen low usage in all three of his starts and has fallen below 20 minutes in his last two turns with the top unit, making reserve forwards like Nikola Mirotic and Doug McDermott better bets to gain fantasy value if Gibson remains out for multiple games.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Plays 22 minutes in return from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (illness) logged six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five rebounds, one steal and one block across 22 minutes in a 99-98 loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Mirotic had missed the Bulls' previous four games while dealing with the illness, but upon being cleared to return Tuesday, he immediately reclaimed his usual role as the team's top big man off the bench. Coach Fred Hoiberg opted to ease Mirotic back into action, but the 25-year-old could take on an increased role Friday against the Hawks if Taj Gibson, who sat out with a sore ankle Tuesday, misses a second straight contest.
