Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson played 29 minutes in the double-overtime Game 3 win and appears to be over his shoulder and ankle issues.
Insight: Gibson only attempted eight shots, but was solid on the boards as usual with 10 rebounds. With Pau Gasol, Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose doing most of the scoring, Gibson is likely to concentrate on hitting the glass for the rest of the series.

Insight: Gibson went through the shootaround on Friday morning, but there is still no word whether or not he is going to play. Either way Gibson is a high risk, and Nikola Mirotic should still remain in fantasy lineups.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson made it through the morning shootaround and could try to play Friday night, according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson will not play on Thursday versus the Knicks.

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.

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.
