So this is by far the WORST stretch for the Bulls in the Thibodeau era. Funny. Everyone was willing the Bulls to tank the season to go for a lottery ball… The way the injuries have been going (what else is new?) they may not have a choice in the matter. They just don’t have the horses to exert the required effort for 48 minutes.
Deng out: Strained left Achilles/Calf
Butler out: Turf Toe
Joakim missed the Bucks game at the UC with a thigh bruise tweaked at shootaround. Returned to play at MSG in the NYK loss.
Tonight, the Bulls find themselves in Milwaukee to face the Bucks. D.J. Augustin will be in uniform for the game as the Bulls picked him up off waivers just a couple of days ago. He’s not a horrible decision maker and is quick. A scorer and facilitator that the Bulls desperately need. It will take him time to learn the plays, but a fresh body is always nice to have around. Lets hope he earns Tom’s trust since we know its only a matter of time before Hinrich has an ailment or two.
I’ll be around for the Bucks game and I PROMISE I haven’t abandoned the blog because of the losses. Its just engagement season and I need to have everything in place for my business this month and next month!
Go Bulls! #SeeRed –ct
