Whoa! Looks like Whiteside tried to put himself in Triple H’s finishing move

Chuck Swirsky

Do the Raps ever run plays for JV? The guy never sees the ball...

Nazr Mohammed

Uncle Charlie Wilson soldout the United Center this Saturday. Amazing Concert!!! instagram.com/p/zvsejVt0KX/

Chuck Swirsky

JV can have a dbl-dbl by 3rd quarter vs Philly tonight- book it.

Chuck Swirsky

Derrick Rose (right knee) is out. Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) is out. Taj Gibson (left ankle) is out Pau Gasol (illness) is probable

Vincent Goodwill

The hits keep coming for the Bulls. First Rose and Gibson, now Butler out for 3-6 weeks: bit.ly/1vU78Ru #BullsTalk

Joe Cowley

Bulls body count now three and counting, as Butler could miss 3-6 weeks with elbow injury - read it - chicago.suntimes.com/basketball/7/7…

Vincent Goodwill

With Rose, Gibson and Butler out, the Bulls lose 49% of their scoring and it’s likely the Bulls will use their 19th starting lineup tmrw

Nick Friedell

From @jacob_nitzberg: If Thibs goes with Kirk, Jo, Pau, Mike and Aaron, that group has only played 2.9 seconds together all yr. On Nov. 7th

Nick Friedell

The first time they played together was in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

Nick Friedell

Crazy stat via @jacob_nitzberg: If Thibs goes with starting 5 of Brooks, Mike, Pau, Jo and Snell, that group has only played 7 min. together

KC Johnson

Bulls will use 20th different starting lineup Tuesday vs. Wizards.

Chuck Swirsky

It s always something ! http://t.co/lpwkwgpMbb

Joe Cowley

McDermott working on his floater off the crossover. He'll be breaking Summer League ankles all June with that.

Mike McGraw

Next 7 days will be tough for #Bulls : Wash, OKC, at Indy, at Spurs, Memphis

Joe Cowley

Gibson in a boot. Not Butler. At this point, boots for everyone!

Nick Friedell

Gibson rolled his ankle badly while landing on somebody's foot. Butler got his elbow caught in a screen. Those are just basketball plays.

Mike McGraw

Summary of Thibs after practice: "More than enough ... No one is going to feel sorry for us, etc." #Bulls

Nick Friedell

The Thibs' minutes debate will rage on forever, but he shouldn't be blamed for Gibson and Butler's injuries. Bulls just caught bad luck.

Mike McGraw

Doug McDermott waiting in wings, but my guess is he doesn't join rotation unless Dunleavy, Snell, Mirotic get hurt or foul trouble. #Bulls

Nick Friedell

Snell's confidence has been high of late -- he's going to be the guy Thibs leans on even more without Butler. On both ends of the floor.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls may look at signing player to 10-day mostly to help at practice.

Nick Friedell

Thibs on who the next man up is for the Bulls: "Our Team"

Mike McGraw

For now, no reason for significant changes to rotation. Snell starts at 2; Mirotic gets more minutes at 3; E'Twaun Moore plays some. #Bulls

Joe Cowley

Bairstow looks healthy.

Joe Cowley

Butler still in a boot. Help Wanted sign just posted outside Advocate Center.

Mike McGraw

Taj in walking boot, Butler has thick wrap on elbow. Sad scene at Advocate Center.#Bulls

Vincent Goodwill

Butler out 3-6 weeks with elbow injury: bit.ly/1vU78Ru

Nick Friedell

No matter what Thibs says, no team can afford to lose three players the caliber of Rose, Butler and Gibson and sustain success.

Vincent Goodwill

When asked who was the next man up, Thibs smiled and said "the whole team"...ie, they're running out of bodies #BullsTalk

Joe Cowley

As far as a replacement for Butler. Thibs said, "the team."

Chuck Swirsky

Next man up ! http://t.co/2Un30NTNgm

KC Johnson

Gibson hasn't done anything on the court.

Nick Friedell

Thibs has already hit on familiar refrain that Bulls have "more than enough"

Joe Cowley

"Disappointed for Jimmy ... We've got to hold the fort down." Thibs.

Joe Cowley

"No one is feeling sorry for us .... Whoever is next, get out there and get it done." Thibs on Butler.

KC Johnson

Usual storyline with Wizards in town is who has better backcourt: Rose-Butler or Wall-Beal? Bulls likely starting Brooks-Snell now.

Mike McGraw

Elbow sprain sounds mild, but full description of Butler's condition is "Grade 2/3 ulnar ligament sprain and small bone impaction injury."

Mike McGraw

While I was en route to Advocate Center, #Bulls announced Jimmy Butler will be out 3-6 weeks with left elbow sprain.

KC Johnson

If Butler returns in 3 weeks, there are 11 regular-season games left. If it takes 6 weeks, there are two games remaining.

Chuck Swirsky

My thoughts on the character of the Bulls lockeroom despite countless injuries . “Success is not measured by the... fb.me/7b8QiHg1n

KC Johnson

Twitterverse needs to chill with the blame game. Jimmy Butler ran into a screen. Freak injury.

Joe Cowley

According to Bulls, Butler 3-6 weeks.

Chuck Swirsky

The Chicago Bulls announced today that an MRI of Jimmy Butler confirmed a Grade 2/3 ulnar ligament sprain and... fb.me/6CfDodFqL

Vincent Goodwill

Their starting backcourt will likely miss the entire month of March, and there’s still no word on Taj Gibson’s ankle

Nick Friedell

Very good chance Bulls could be without Rose, Butler and Gibson for most of the month. Not good.

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls announce Jimmy Butler has grade 2-3 ligament strain in left elbow. Estimate for return, 3-6 weeks

Chuck Swirsky

It is estimated that Butler may be out three to six weeks.

Nick Friedell

Bulls send out release saying MRI on Jimmy Butler's elbow confirmed sprain. Say he could be out between 3-6 weeks.

KC Johnson

Bulls release says Butler will miss 3-6 weeks with "Grade 2/3 ulnar ligament sprain and small bone impaction injury to the left elbow."

Chuck Swirsky

The Bulls announced that an MRI of Jimmy Butler confirmed a Grade 2/3 ulnar ligament sprain and small bone impaction injury left elbow

Joe Cowley

Bulls basketball: Winter's coming!

KC Johnson

Huge blow for Bulls on top of Rose injury. Butler is leading scorer, best defender and leads NBA in minutes.

KC Johnson

Butler doesn't need surgery so his absence will be determined by how elbow responds to rest/treatment.

Nick Friedell

Still hopeful Butler will return for a few games before postseason with Rose. Butler was seen walking into Bulls' facility wearing brace.

Joe Cowley

Butler could be out 3 weeks ... So there's that.

KC Johnson

Rose, Butler and Gibson all out for awhile now. Bulls have open roster spot. Will be tough sledding offensively in near future.

Nick Friedell

League source confirms @Adrian Wojnarowski report that Jimmy Butler won't need surgery. Needs rest/treatment to heal ligament sprain.

KC Johnson

Source said Butler will be evaluated on a weekly basis and could be back before 3 weeks. But definitely out extended period.

Shams Charania

Miami Heat have reached agreement with forward Henry Walker on a second 10-day contract, league source tells RealGM. First expires today.

Sam Smith

Can you believe where the excitement is in the NBA the last 20 games. And more. bit.ly/1EG1Wma

Vincent Goodwill

James Jones is NOT gonna like this RT @Houston Rockets: Long live the new King. http://t.co/ecsKqMtYuh

Sam Smith

Bulls lose to Clippers and lose another starter to injury. blogs.bulls.com/2015/03/bulls-…

Chuck Swirsky

Way too many people are leaving us...RIP one of the ALL TIME greats Gordie Gillespie. A man of character and integrity.

Chuck Swirsky

Are you sure you re all right? You sure?

Chuck Swirsky

Really ,really good NBA game ....

Chuck Swirsky

LeBron channeling Chris Dudley.

Chuck Swirsky

So remember the NBA releases last 2 min on officials calls at crunch time. Last Rockets sequence was rather bizarre.

Chuck Swirsky

I want Cavs and Rockets to play nine overtimes.

Chuck Swirsky

Prior to the game caught up with legendary referee of 38 years Joey Crawford and no he did not tech me up http://t.co/htpTPl6y2u

Vincent Goodwill

Harden put somebody in a blender!!! Pardon me, in partaking this at a Harold's. Chicagoans say this is some of the best y'all have to offer

Vincent Goodwill

Butler's elbow, Gibson's ankle, the injuries keep piling up for the Bulls: bit.ly/1EZ1m0O #BullsTalk

Pau Gasol

Congrats to my good friends @RafaelNadal for his victory in Buenos Aires and @DavidFerrer87 in Acapulco!

Pau Gasol

Felicidades a mis buenos amigos @RafaelNadal por su triunfo en Buenos Aires y a @DavidFerrer87 en Acapulco!

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on Hinrich 0-7: "Kirk is battling through injury; we’re shorthanded and he is giving us what he has."

Sam Smith

Mirotic: "The most important thing with our team is whenever something happen here we are together and we really try to find a way."

Sam Smith

Mirotic w/29 pts and 9 rebs: "I am trying to play well, but we lost the game and I have a bad feeling about this game."

Sam Smith

Mirotic on career hi 29: "Tough game for us because we lost. Without Derrick without Pau without Jimmy, so somebody need to shoot the ball."

Sam Smith

Thibs on 31% shooting: "When your primary scorers are out it’s going to be a struggle. But we’ve go to be able to find a way to win."

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on Butler leaving in 3rd: "It’s a hyperextension of the elbow; he’ll have an MRI tomorrow; so we’ll find out more then."

Sam Smith

Thibs on Gasol 4&15: "I want to give Pau credit, Pau is sick, very sick. He knows we’re shorthanded; he got out there and gave us everything

Sam Smith

Thibodeau on 96-86 loss: "You’ve just got to find a way to win; that game was winnable down the stretch and we just didn’t get it done."

Nikola Mirotic

A few missed opportunities today, time to get ready for Tuesday @Chicago Bulls

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson is in a walking boot. Jimmy Butler has Monday MRI scheduled. And Rose out 4-6 weeks. Same old story for Bulls.

Nick Friedell

Taj Gibson is in a walking boot.

KC Johnson

Derrick Rose continued his rehab today and continues to say he'll return this season.

Vincent Goodwill

Gasol is still very sick, Thibs said. Likely contributed to his 2-13 performance and struggles against Jordan

Vincent Goodwill

Hyperextended elbow for Butler. MRI upcoming

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Butler has a hyperextended elbow and will have an MRI tomorrow.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau said Butler will have MRI on hyperextended left elbow on Monday.

KC Johnson

Thibodeau credited Gasol for playing through illness because Bulls were shorthanded.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Gasol is still very sick. Gave him credit for getting out there and playing.

Nick Friedell

The last Bulls FG by a player other than Mirotic came with 3:10 left in the 3rd -- Tony Snell hit a 3.

Nick Friedell

Mirotic was 11-for-23 from the field. The rest of the Bulls were 16-for-64. Unbelievable.

Chuck Swirsky
