Taj Gibson Could Be Out for Two Weeks With Sprained MCL

Chicago Bulls forward Taj Gibson’s left knee injury may keep him sidelined for a couple of weeks, something his sputtering team can ill afford. Per the Chicago Tribune: “Taj Gibson celebrated the birthdays of Jerry Reinsdorf and Joakim Noah on Monday by having an MRI performed on his sprained left knee. Well, not really, but the confluence of such events seemed fitting for a star-crossed Bulls team these days. For every celebratory moment — a blowout win in Charlotte, Noah turning 28 — a somber one follows in the form of a convincing loss to an elite team or another injury. At least Gibson’s MRI didn’t reveal a torn ACL, although it did confirm a sprained MCL that could sideline the defensive-minded forward up to two weeks. Fortunate, too, is the fact the Cavaliers come to town Tuesday, a team the Bulls have solved 11 straight times by an average of 17.8 points.”

    Well new update. Irving out too tonight as well with hyper extended knee injury. So this game will have backup PG playing against each other. Cavs have had more trouble with Bulls than OKC, Heat , Spurs, Clippers or Lakers.
