One reserve the Bulls could bring back is center Nazr Mohammed, who was huge off the bench the last few months. “Yeah, I thought Nazr was tremendous,’’ Thibodeau said. “Hopefully we’ll have an opportunity with him, but again, you don’t know what the market will call for.’’ Chicago Sun-Times

For the second straight day, Thibodeau wouldn’t comment on the $35,000 fine he received from the NBA for criticizing officials following Game 3. The Bulls will be without Hinrich, Deng and Derrick Rose but will return Nazr Mohammed, who won’t receive any further league discipline after getting ejected from Game 3 for shoving LeBron James.

A few minutes later, Chicago forward Carlos Boozer had finished complaining about a noncall inside when James dribbled into the Miami forecourt. Mohammed tried to grab James to prevent a transition basket. James extended an arm to create space and sent Mohammed tumbling to the floor. “I seen him hawking me down for a long time, and I seen him come with one of those club fouls, which was unnecessary,” James said. “I basically just tried to protect myself, stand my ground.” New York Times

Mohammed said he'd be "shocked" if his shove of the Heat's LeBron James that led to Mohammed's second- quarter ejection Friday draws a suspension. The Bulls felt James embellished Mohammed's shove, with Thibodeau even calling it a flop. "Nazr is a quiet guy. My father always told me the quiet ones are who you have to worry about," Nate Robinson said of Mohammed's toughness. "I wouldn't put it past Nazr to move him out. Nazr is a great guy." Chicago Tribune

When everyone else watched Chicago's Nazr Mohammed make a run at James, shove him tumbling onto his back on Friday night, the Bulls witnessed something else: confirmation of a conspiracy. Mohammed earned the ejection, and the rest of these Bulls earned the indignation and outrage that they need for public retaliation. "We're well aware of what's going on," Thibodeau seethed late Friday. "I'm watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I'm seeing is… "…We'll adjust accordingly." Yahoo! Sports

“I’m sitting back here looking at the play and I’m just disappointed,” Mohammed said. “I wanted to be out there so bad. I wanted to help my teammates win the game, and to be back here watching over something like a push … I’m disappointed I let somebody else cause a reaction like that when I knew there was going to be so much of a microscope on the game and the physicality.” CBSSports.com
