Taj Gibson PF/C CHI 2 Hrs

Gibson isn't expected to require an MRI on the ankle he injured in Friday's victory over the Timberwolves, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Coach Tom Thibodeau relayed that the team's medical staff would wait and see how Gibson's ankle responds to treatment Saturday before determining his availability for Sunday's tilt with the Clippers. Gibson aggravated the same ankle that's dogged him throughout the season, but it has yet to result in a significant in productivity when he's been able to suit up. Aside from a two-point drop in his scoring average, Gibson is holding fairly steady with his numbers from 2013-14 in just about every statistical category.

Gibson suffered an ankle injury in Friday's game against the Timberwolves, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gibson's absence from the court will leave the Bulls even more shorthanded, with Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose also out. The Bulls play against the Clippers on Sunday, which will be his next chance to return. However, the team should release more details on the injury at some point prior to the contest.

Gibson (illness) returned to action Wednesday from a one-game absence, putting up seven points (2-6 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in 28 minutes off the bench.

Gibson missed Monday's game against the Bucks with an illness. It appears he's over the illness, so make sure he's back in lineups in deeper leagues and some 12-team leagues with extended rosters.

Gibson (illness) will play Wednesday against the Hornets, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Despite sitting out Tuesday's practice, Gibson has been given the green light to play Wednesday, though he may be less than 100 percent. He missed Monday's blowout win over the Bucks, which allowed Nikola Mirotic to play 31 minutes. With Gibson back, Mirotic will likely see his workload reduced back into the 15-20 minute range.

Gibson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday and is considered day-to-day, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Gibson was relegated to riding a stationary bike during Tuesday's session, and at this point it seems unlikely he plays Wednesday against Charlotte. However, he has not been ruled out, and the team is only calling him day-to-day, so there is a possibility he could be available after sitting out Monday's win over Milwaukee.

Gibson (ankle/hand) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Milwaukee, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports.

He revealed over the weekend that he is suffering from a hand injury, in addition to the ankle injury he has been attempting to play through. The Bulls play again Wednesday so there is a chance Gibson will be able to return after a few days off, but he should be considered day-to-day for now. With Gibson out Monday, Nikola Mirotic becomes an excellent play in daily leagues.

Gibson revealed Saturday that he suffered a ligament tear in his left hand in January and the injury is almost healed, ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell reports.In addition to the hand injury, Gibson has been banged up with an ankle injury that doctors say will bother him all season, so it is pretty impressive that he has been able to gut it out so far. Gibson's numbers haven't really suffered this season, although he is averaging fewer points per game this season despite seeing the same minutes per game and shooting for a better percentage from the field. This step back can be mostly attributed to the addition of Pau Gasol, however, and not the nagging injuries. Look for Gibson to continue to play through the pain.

Gibson had 11 points (2-7 FG, 5-8 FT) and eight rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench Sunday against the Heat.

Gibson has resumed his role coming off the bench now that Noah is back from injury, but Noah is still a bit hampered. As a result, Gibson should continue to put up solid numbers moving forward.
