Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson was seen in a walking boot after the loss against the Clippers on Sunday according to ESPN Chicago.
Insight: Gibson did not play versus the Clippers on Sunday after rolling his ankle on Friday. He should be considered doubtful for Tuesday's game. For owners needing a replacement for Gibson, Nikola Mirotic led the team with 29 points on Sunday.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is not playing on Sunday versus the Clippers.
Insight: Gibson reinjured his ankle during Friday's game and was limping pretty severely on the sidelines afterward. Pau Gasol is returning, so he, Joakim Noah and Nikola Mirotic will see a ton of minutes on Sunday.
 
2/28/2015 2:30:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson left Friday's game with an apparent ankle sprain and is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Clippers.
Insight: Pau Gasol (illness) is expected back and would see big minutes if Gibson can't run.
 
2/27/2015 8:54:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson left Friday's game with an apparent ankle sprain.
Insight: He will not return which leaves Chicago very thin at power forward with Pau Gasol out as well. Nikola Mirotic will play most of the game.
 
2/27/2015 2:03:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is expected to start Friday night for the ill Pau Gasol.
Insight: Gasol has played well this season (18.4 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 2.9 apg, 2.1 bpg), but the Bulls can move Gibson into the starting lineup. Gibson has averaged 13.7 ppg, 8.5 apg, 1.6 apg in 13 starts.
 
2/25/2015 1:56:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is expected to play on Wednesday according to ESPN Chicago.
Insight: Gibson hasn't practiced in full since becoming ill, so it seems he still isn't 100 percent, however, Gibson is a must-start player if he is on the court. He is averaging 10.8 ppg and 6.7 rpg this season.
 
2/23/2015 1:28:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is expected to miss Monday night versus Milwaukee due to illness, sccording to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

Cold1/12/2015 2:33:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is expected to play Monday night despite a left thumb injury.
Insight: Gibson has shot just 4-of-17 over the past two games with a combined nine rebounds, so clearly he isn't playing up to expectations at this point in time.

12/18/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson will not play on Thursday versus the Knicks.
Insight: Gibson suffered an ankle injury, so Chicago wants to rest him since Thursday should be an easy victory. Nikola Mirotic will receive additional minutes and is a nice add to any lineup.
 
12/15/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson had a strong game during Monday's loss to Atlanta.
Insight: He started for Joakim Noah and had 15 points, 17 rebounds, one assist, two blocks, two turnovers, and shot 7-of-11 from the floor. Once Noah returns, Gibson will be slightly inconsistent.
 
12/6/2014 6:30:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson (ankle) will return Saturday against the Warriors.
Insight: Gibson has not played since Nov. 21, but will make return to his bench role tonight. Joakim Noah is also active, but that comes as no surprise. Nikola Mirotic is the biggest loser from this.
 
11/30/2014 10:56:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson will miss another game on Sunday versus the Nets.
Insight: Gibson has misssed the last four games now with an ankle injury. He is still considered day-to-day. Forward Nikola Mirotic has proved to be fantasy relevant and can provide some short-term value.
 
11/28/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson (sprained left ankle) will miss Friday's game against Boston.
Insight: Gibson was hoping to return in time for Friday's game, but that won't happen. He's averaging 12.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.7 apg primarily off the bench, but when he starts he's been better (15.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.2 apg). Nikola Mirotic could see more playing time.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle on Friday for a third time since last spring and will miss a second consecutive game Tuesday.
Insight: Gibson hopes to return in time for Friday's game, but there are no guarantees. He's averaging 12.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.7 apg primarily off the bench, but when he starts he's been better (15.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.2 apg).
 
11/22/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle on Friday for a third time since last spring.
Insight: Gibson will likely sit out longer with this sprain because the same injury keeps reoccuring. Gibson said he wants to be out there and play, but it is a long season and that he needs to rest and get healthy. That could help the value of Nikola Mirotic, who posted 24 points and 11 rebounds replacing Gibson on Friday, but Pau Gasol will play in front of Mirotic once he is healthy.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson will start for injured Pau Gasol again Thursday and is in line for big numbers.
