Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson is expected to play Monday night.
Insight: Gibson suffered an ankle injury,but after a weekend off made it through the morning shootaround. He's averaging a very respectable 12.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 1.5 apg, 1.4 bpg off the bench.
 
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.
 
11/25/2014 11:26:00 AM
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.
 
Hot11/20/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson will start for injured Pau Gasol again Thursday and is in line for big numbers.
Insight: Gibson scored 20 points on 9-for-13 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, a steal and two blocks Monday in 41 minutes and could easily duplicate, or better, those totals.
 
11/18/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson started for injured Pau Gasol and posted solid fantasy numbers.
Insight: Gibson scored 20 points on 9-for-13 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, a steal and two blocks.
 
11/5/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson led the team with 23 points against the Bucks on Wednesday.
Insight: Gibson also had 10 rebounds to register a double-double. He shot 9-of-17 from the field and 5-of-9 at the line.
 
11/4/2014 11:59:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson (ankle) practiced Monday and should be ready to play Tuesday against Orlando.
Insight: Gibson is averaging 28 minutes a game despite all the talent the Bulls have up front and posting solid numbers - 16 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.5 apg.
 
10/31/2014 12:20:00 PM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson played very well coming off the bench in the season opener and given a chance can certainly repeat those numbers.
Insight: Gibson played 28 minutes, scoring 22 points and pulling down eight rebounds, but that was against a weak Knicks team. Let's see what kind of role and output he posted Friday night against Cleveland.
 
10/20/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: As far as drafting bench players goes, Bulls forward Taj Gibson should be one of the top bench players taken in fantasy drafts.
Insight: Gibson averaged 19.3 PPG, 2.8 APG, 9.8 RPG, and 1.8 BPG in seven starts last season. The front court is crowded in Chicago, but should Joakim Noah or Pau Gasol go down, Gibson will start and Chicago shouldn't miss a beat. He will be a great sixth man as well, which makes him a late value pickup in fantasy.

Description: Taj Gibson has been told he'll be the Bulls' starter at power forward next season. SOURCE: Chicago Sun-Times
Insight: The implication is that Carlos Boozer is on his way out of Chi-Town. Boozer could be tough to trade given his gigantic $16.8 million salary but Gibson (13.0 ppg, 6.8 rpg) has certainly earned his place in the starting lineup.
 
4/30/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that Taj Gibson sprained his ankle Tuesday night, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Gibson exited Game 5 of Chicago's playoff series against the Wizards with the injury and never returned. Washington eliminated the Bulls despite Gibson averaging 18.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game in the series. The 28-year-old had his best season in 2013-14 (13 ppg, 6.8 rpg, 1.4 bpg).
 
4/29/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Bulls PF/C Taj Gibson rolled his left ankle on John Wall's foot during Tuesday's game and was helped to the locker room, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: The Bulls are trailing 3-1 in the series and 68-62 with 6:03 left in the fourth quarter in Game 5 Tuesday. Gibson averaged 19.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over the first four games of the series and had 12 points, four boards and three blocks before exiting Tuesday.
 
4/27/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Bulls PF/C Taj Gibson netted a game-high 32 points Sunday in a Game 4 loss to Washington.
Insight: Gibson scored 20 of those points in the first half. He shot an incredible 81.3 percent from the floor (13-of-16) and spent most of the game manhandling Trevor Booker in the low post. Of course, things will be a lot harder for Gibson Tuesday when Nene returns from his one-game suspension.
 
Hot4/23/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Chicago PF/C Taj Gibson recorded his fourth career postseason double-double Tuesday against Washington.
Insight: He finished with 22 points, ten boards and three blocked shots. Despite Gibson's efforts, the Bulls are down 0-2 and will have to win the next couple on the road to have any chance of coming back in this series.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson has averaged 16.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks over his last seven games.
