Thibs said Noah had knee effusion, on top of getting poked in the eye last night.

Nick Friedell

Mayo Clinic defines knee effusion as: "Water on the knee is a general term for excess fluid accumulation in or around your knee joint."

Joe Cowley

Why does he have to do cryotherapy? Pain in the knee and inflammation.

Joe Cowley

One of the causes of that is ligament problems. Guess what has been known to mess with ligaments? Cryotherapy, which Noah has to do a lot.

Joe Cowley

A quick medical update on Noah, and why you should be concerned. He's out with left knee effusion ... water on the knee.

Joe Cowley

"..else ... C'mon. Jesus.'' The Thibs.

Joe Cowley

Then comes the beauty, when Thibs was asked about playing in the altitude - "It's beautiful... I mean what... it's like playing everywhere..

Joe Cowley

The correction came from a reporter that said, "You mean ankle?'' Thibs snaps back, "Yeah.''

Joe Cowley

Poor Thibs. He rules Taj Gibson out - considering Gibson is in Chicago - pretty obvious. Then says it's a knee.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Noah is out knee/eye. Hinrich is in. Gibson still in Chicago and Thibs says he's still day to day. Rose and Gasol will play.

Chuck Swirsky

Joakim is out...left knee and left eye. Kirk is a go.

Joe Cowley

Hinrich on the court now, seeing if that chest will allow him to play.

Chuck Swirsky

Welcome to Bulls ball http://t.co/6lGpLgkFVc

Pau Gasol

Esta noche partido difícil contra los #Nuggets en Denver. A por otro buen partido fuera de casa! #SeeRed #LetsGooo!

Pau Gasol

Tonight difficult back-to-back against the #Nuggets in Denver. Let's have another good one! #SeeRed

Nick Friedell

Updated injury release from Bulls: Noah left eye/left knee is questionable. Rose&Gasol are probable. Hinrich is questionable. Gibson is out.

Shams Charania

Seven-footer Hassan Whiteside's free agent deal with the Miami Heat: two years, including partial guarantees, sources tell RealGM.

Chuck Swirsky

Joakim Noah (left eye, left knee)-questionable

Joe Cowley

Noah questionable (eye).

Mike McGraw

#Bulls have added Joakim Noah to the injury report -- questionable vs. Denver with eye and knee issues.

KC Johnson

New injury update: Noah questionable vs. Nuggets with that eye injury and left knee. That's the one Bulls surgically repaired.

Chuck Swirsky

Don't forget Bulls fans you can join @34billy42 and me on ESPN 1000 tonight. Spread the word ....

Taj Gibson

Appreciate @uber for keeping me out of the cold today. @Uber_CHI

Pau Gasol

Today is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Let’s embrace a society without violence against women.

Joe Cowley

For those that love the new NBA injury protocol - Rose and Gasol (probable), Hinrich (questionable), Gibson (out and out of town).

Mike McGraw

Denver has been the worst NBA stop for #Bulls in recent years. They are 1-13 at Pepsi Center since end of championship era. Lone win in '06.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls' injury report lists Rose and Gasol as probable for tonight in Denver; Hinrich questionable and Gibson out.

Chuck Swirsky

Rose (left hamstring strain)-probable Gasol (left calf strain)-probable Hinrich (chest contusion)-questionable Gibson ( ankle sprain)-out

Joel Brigham

It just seems important to mention that the Milwaukee Bucks have a better record than the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Sam Smith

Bulls endure with 97-95 win in Utah to even trip record at 2-2. blogs.bulls.com/2014/11/butler…

Chuck Swirsky

Wheels down Denver. Bulls - Nuggets 730 CT pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000

Nick Friedell

There can't be many more lonelier walks than after a game in Salt Lake City. It's always cold and there aren't many people around.

Nick Friedell

Thibs has been pretty consistent about wanting Rose on the floor since camp opened. Tonight was just the most open he's been about it.

Chuck Swirsky

Wheels up headed to Denver. Go Bulls !

Nick Friedell

Exasperated Thibs on whether Rose&Gasol would be able to play in Denver tomorrow night: I would hope so. Jeez. We'll see tomorrow, I guess."

Pau Gasol

Muy contento con la victoria de esta noche en #Utah! Me he sentido muy bien de nuevo en la pista. A seguir ganando! #SeeRed

Pau Gasol

Big win tonight against the #Jazz! It felt great to be back on the floor with the rest of the guys. Let's keep on winning! #SeeRed

Nikola Mirotic

Important win tonight! Happy to see @Derrick Rose and @Pau Gasol back and hope Kirk and @Taj Gibson will be ready to go soon @Chicago Bulls #SeeRed

Joe Cowley

...“I would hope so … geez. We’ll see tomorrow, I guess.'' Thibs.

Joe Cowley

Thibs quote of the night. Asked if he thinks Rose and Pau can go back-to-back with game in Denver tomorrow ...

Joe Cowley

"...and that’s how he practices, that’s how he plays.'' Doesn’t take any possessions off. He’s into it and it shows.’’ Thibs on Butler.

Joe Cowley

Thibs definitely not hiding who his favorite kid is these days: "He plays at an incredibly high intensity level all the time ... ''

Nick Friedell

Thibs: "When Derrick strings some games together he's going to take off. He's got to go. That's the bottom line. He's got to go."

Nick Friedell

Thibs, on if he thought Rose was fatigued in the 2nd half: "Oh I don't know. Jesus. He's got to get out there and play ..."

Nick Friedell

Thibs sending a pretty clear message to Rose about finding a way to stay on the floor. Thibs' frustration with Rose's status is palpable.

Sam Smith

Mike Dunleavy's only two points with 22.5 seconds left in game on followup of Jimmy Butler blocked layup is winning basket.

Joe Cowley

"... He’s gotta go. That’s the bottom line, he’s gotta go.’’

Chuck Swirsky

By the way @34billy42 called Utah s final play BEFORE the play That's why he's great

Joe Cowley

"You can see he’s not real comfortable with the ball yet, but that will come. When he strings some games together he’s going to take off.''

Joe Cowley

“Oh I don’t know, Jesus. Gotta get out there and play, you know. I thought he did a lot of good things. ... ''

Joe Cowley

Intense Thibs sending a message to Rose and his protectors. Thibs asked about Rose looking fatigued:

Joe Cowley

Noah had drops put in his left eye. Hoping he doesn't have to goggle-up. Dunleavy, however, was pulling for Noah in goggles.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler Rose Gasol. Strong. Butler took Hayward out of the game. Mirotic developing in front of our eyes

Chuck Swirsky

As always Bulls fans. Thanks for listening A pleasure.

Nick Friedell

Noah got his eye checked out. Says they put some stuff in it but hopes he will be fine for Denver.

Joe Cowley

Thibs made it very clear that he is tired of Rose injury talk. "He's gotta go (play)!" Thibs insisted twice. More to come.

Nick Friedell

Thibs said Noah is being looked at by eye doctor. He got poked in the eye late in the game.

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls win...Hayward misses top side 3 for the win....97-95 Rose-18 Butler-25 Gasol-23-9

Joe Cowley

See, they had it all along. #bumteam

Nick Friedell

Hayward misses a 3 at the buzzer. Bulls escape with a win. Butler and Gasol lead the way offensively again combining for 48 points.

Chuck Swirsky

Gasol splits a pair...Bulls 97-95 2.9 sec left Jazz ball.

Joe Cowley

Tony Snell found his place on this team - jump-ball expert!!

Nick Friedell

Thibs goes with offense/defense sub putting Snell back in for Dunleavy. Snell wins jump ball. Bulls have chance to wrap up game.

Chuck Swirsky

Dunleavy with the put back Bulls 96-95 Jazz ball 18sec left

Sam Smith

Home crowd in Salt Lake City confused. Constantly calling Jimmy Butler, "Loooouuuuuuuu." Bulls by one with 18 seconds left

Nick Friedell

Great hustle by Dunleavy. Butler picked up ball and raced down the floor but his shot got blocked. Dunleavy put it back in, gave Bulls lead.

Mike McGraw

Offensive rebounds have been killing the #Bulls down the stretch.

Nick Friedell

No doubt. But also fair to say Butler was a little pumped for this oneMT @JasonBYU In fairness, Hayward has been tearing it up this season.

Joe Cowley

Welcome back to the game, Mr. Rose.

Joe Cowley

Go-to player for the Bulls this season? Jimmy All-Star.

Nick Friedell

Noah is back on the floor. Appears to be moving OK.

Sam Smith

Jazz take their biggest lead of four with 3:30 to go. The altitude, yeah, tha'ts it, the altitude. And all the streets are named Temple.

Nick Friedell

Jazz have clawed all the way back. Outscored Bulls 46-36 in the paint. Out-rebounded Bulls 37-31. Lead by 4 with 3:30 left.

Joe Cowley

21-point lead by the Bulls is now a four-point lead for the Jazz. One dumb reporter said this game was over in the first. #badme

Chuck Swirsky

Noah left eye injury questionable to return

Nick Friedell

Jimmy Butler tonight (no extension) 40 minutes, 23 points, 7/13 from field. Gordon Hayward (max extension) 33 minutes, 6 pts 2/10 from field

Joe Cowley

Bulls players need to start wearing bubble wrap.

Joe Cowley

Noah eye poke has him in the locker room.

Nick Friedell

Rose's lateral quickness isn't there right now. Much more noticeable on defense.

Chuck Swirsky

Jazz take a 88-87 lead

Chuck Swirsky

537 left Bulls 87-84 ...don't leave us on Bulls Radio

Nick Friedell

Aaron Brooks has 7 points in the fourth quarter. Rose waiting to check in at the scorer's table.

Joe Cowley

Rose back in with 6:59. Hero time?

Joe Cowley

Even with back-to-back, figured he could give them 28-30 tonight.

Joe Cowley

Rose 19 minutes and still sitting. Hmmmmm.

Nick Friedell

Noah went back to the locker room. Looked like he might have gotten hit in the face a few minutes ago. Bulls' staff checking him out.

Joe Cowley

Butler showed up to the arena before the rest of the team this morning, and was working on different ways to spin the ball for a layup.

Nick Friedell

Butler continues to attack the rim. His offensive confidence is off the charts. He's got 23 points and is 8-for-9 from the line.

Chuck Swirsky

Butler with 23...Bulls 84-82 early 4th

Nick Friedell

Snell has taken McDermott's late game minutes for the time being. But Thibs isn't very happy with either of them.

Joe Cowley

Won't see Snell for a month.

Nick Friedell

Meanwhile, the Bulls are self-destructing right now. Can't find any rhythm offensively.

Nick Friedell

Butler gets T'd up. Will be interesting to hear what set him off after the game. Jimmy doesn't usually get that upset.

Joe Cowley

Venom suit ... I'm telling you.

Nick Friedell

Butler gets tied up with Ingles and is not happy. Feels like he got pulled. Talked to him on the floor and then said, "F*** you."

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls gave up 36 3rd quarter points

Chuck Swirsky

Bulls once led by 21--lead cut to 1 after 3...78-77
