Nazr Mohammed C CHI 3 weeks ago

Mohammed was held scoreless (0-1 FG), but grabbed two rebounds and blocked one shot in six minutes Saturday against the Knicks.

The Bulls big men are finally getting healthy, meaning Mohammed will return to his role of playing limited minutes off of the bench if he even gets into a game.

Mohammed scored eight points (4-4 FG) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in seven minutes Sunday against the Spurs.

Not only was this a rare appearance for Mohammed, but this was the most points he has scored in a game this season. He's not playing much even with all of the Bulls injuries and his biggest value at this time is that he is a veteran leader on the team.

Mohammed scored two points (1-3 FG) to go along with four rebounds and one steal in 10 minutes Friday against the Timberwolves.

Mohammed was forced into action Friday with Paul Gasol (illness) out and Taj Gibson (ankle) leaving the game after playing only nine minutes. Gasol could be back for Sunday's game against the Clippers, so expect Mohammed to return to his very limited role when he does.

Mohammed did not play again Saturday against the Hawks.

Mohammed has only played eight games this season and his value to the Bulls at this point in his career is that of a veteran voice in the locker room.

Mohammed scored one point (0-3 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes Friday against Portland.

Mohammed played in only his second game of the season Friday as the Bulls were without Pau Gasol (calf) and then lost Taj Gibson (ankle) in this game. If both players are out again Monday, Mohammed could see increased playing time again. Even if he does though, don't expect him to provide much fantasy value.

Mohammed has yet to play in the regular season for the Bulls.

Mohammed's value to the Bulls at this stage of his career is a veteran presence in the locker room. Don't expect him to see much playing time.

Mohammed re-signed with the Bulls on Monday.

Mohammed, who contemplated retirement this summer, will return for his 17th NBA season and third with the Bulls. He appeared in 80 games last season, seeing nearly all of his minutes in garbage time. Despite losing Carlos Boozer, the Bulls gained frontcourt depth overall this offseason, so Mohammed should slot into a similar role as a veteran defender and positive locker room presence.

Nazr Mohammed suffered a sprained middle finger on Monday and is questionable to return.

He was in a little bit of pain and we'll be on the lookout for any information. Mohammed has very little fantasy value.

The Bulls and Nazr Mohammed have verbally agreed to a one-year contract at the veteran's minimum, according to CSN's Aggrey Sam.

The deal doesn't exactly shake up the FA market, but it's a solidifying move for the Bulls' frontcourt. Nazr even wound up starting 12 games for Chicago last season while Joakim Noah was hurt, averaging 7.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game. He isn't likely to approach those numbers in a 10-15 minute role this season.

Tom Thibodeau said he'd like to have Nazr Mohammed return next season.

"Hopefully we'll have an opportunity with him, but again, you don't know what the market will call for," Thibodeau said. It would be surprising if Mohammed got an offer above the veteran's minimum, so if the Bulls want him back, it shouldn't be hard to work out a new deal.
