Bulls' Taj Gibson: Works with starters Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gibson worked with the starters during the scrimmage portion of Saturday's practice, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

While Gibson said he still is not sure whether he'll start or not, it's worth noting that Johnson tweeted it would be a "surprise" if the veteran isn't in the starting lineup when the Bulls open the regular season. Gibson is in competition with Nikola Mirotic and second-year man Bobby Portis for the power forward spot, and coach Fred Hoiberg is yet to tip his hand as to who may have the advantage. As Johnson alludes, Gibson probably makes the most sense at this point, though it's entirely possible all three players could see time in the starting lineup as the season progresses.

Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Limited in Saturday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valentine (ankle) was limited at practice Saturday, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Valentine sat out the team's preseason finale Thursday but told reporters he's still hoping to be available for the team's regular season opener Thursday against the Celtics. At this point, it's unclear whether that will come to fruition, and the rookie will likely have to log at least one full-contact practice before being cleared to play.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: Ready for opening night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic (back) was able to fully participate in practice Saturday, and is expected to be available for opening night, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg indicated following Saturday's practice that he has not yet made a decision on who will start at power forward opening night. The Bulls' roster is very slim when it comes to three point shooters, which increases Mirotic's value to the team. However, Taj Gibson still may get the starting nod. The situation figures to be fluid early on as the Bulls work with several lineups to figure out which ones they prefer.

Bulls' Michael Carter-Williams: Modest showing Bulls debut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carter-Williams made his Bulls debut in Chicago's 97-81 preseason loss to the Hawks on Thursday, tallying four points (1-5 FG, 2-2 FT), three assists, a rebound and a block over 21 minutes.

Carter-Williams arrived last Monday in a trade with the Bucks, so Thursday's outing was his first opportunity to take the floor with his new teammates. The 25-year-old will slot behind Rajon Rondo at the point and should see his minutes progressively rise as the regular season unfolds and he acclimates to the Bulls system. While he provides plenty of upside, Carter-Williams may see his minutes somewhat capped initially, given Rondo's ability to take on a heavy workload.

Bulls' Doug McDermott: Paces bench in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDermott provided 16 points (5-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and a steal over 26 minutes in Friday's 97-81 preseason loss to the Hawks.

Although his shot wasn't at its sharpest, McDermott made up for it with sheer volume on the way to his fourth straight double-digit scoring effort. The third-year pro was particularly aggressive on offense over the last three contests, taking double-digit shot attempts in each, including 18 tries from beyond the arc. Even with starting small forward Jimmy Butler's ability to take on a heavy minutes workload, McDermott still figures to log solid playing time as a viable scoring option on the second unit in the coming season.
