  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Won't play Friday

    Phillips (foot) has been ruled out for Friday's Play-In Game against the Heat.

    Phillips continues to deal with a right mid foot sprain and will be unavailable as the Bulls attempt to secure the No. 8 seed Friday. Even if the Bulls advance to the first round of the playoffs, it seems unlikely that Phillips will be able to return.

  • Bulls' Andre Drummond: Iffy for Friday

    Drummond (ankle) is questionable for Friday's Play-In Game against Miami.

    Drummond returned to action for Wednesday's Play-In Game against Atlanta after missing the final three games of the regular season due to a sprained left ankle. He tallied four points, four rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 11 minutes against the Hawks, and it's possible he'll be available once again Friday.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Questionable to play Friday

    Caruso (ankle) is questionable to play Friday against the Heat.

    The Bulls are facing a win-or-go-home scenario Friday against the Heat, and the potential loss of Caruso would be massive due to his ability on defense and contributions across the board. However, he's dealing with a "significant" ankle sprain, so his status against Miami is in doubt, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Javonte Green, Torrey Craig and Dalen Terry would be the main candidates to take on more minutes if Caruso ends up being ruled out.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Questionable for Friday

    Dosunmu (quadriceps) is questionable for Friday's Play-In Game against Miami.

    Dosunmu sat out the final four games of the regular season due to a right quadriceps contusion but returned to action to begin the postseason Wednesday against Atlanta. He tallied 19 points, three assists, two blocks and a rebound in 41 minutes in his return to action, and he should see plenty of playing time if he's cleared to play once again, especially if Alex Caruso (ankle) is unavailable.

  • Bulls' DeMar DeRozan: Flirts with double-double in win

    DeRozan ended with 22 points (10-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, nine assists, one block and one steal over 44 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 Play-In Game victory over the Hawks.

    DeRozan put together another successful year during his third season with the Bulls. Perhaps the biggest feather in DeRozan's cap is his attendance record, as he's played at least 74 games per season over three years in Chicago. The veteran will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, and the Bulls will likely make a competitive offer unless another team presents an irresistible package. For the time being, DeRozan's focus will be on advancing with a win against Miami.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Records double-double in win

    Vucevic notched 24 points (11-21 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 Play-In Game victory over the Hawks.

    Although Coby White's heroics headlined the game, the most interesting positional battle occurred inside, where Vucevic and Clint Capela went toe-to-toe. Although Capela out-rebounded Vucevic, the Chicago big man displayed his ability to stretch the floor, forcing Capela to play further out. The result was a vulnerable interior defense for the Hawks, and the rest of the team took advantage with productive slashes to the basket. Things won't get any easier for Vucevic in the next game, as he'll face Bam Adebayo in a battle for the eighth seed.

  • Bulls' Coby White: Scores career-high 42 points

    White amassed 42 points (15-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 9-10 FT), nine rebounds, six assists and two steals in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 131-116 Play-In Game victory over Atlanta.

    White enjoyed a career night during the elimination game and led the Bulls in scoring by a wide margin. The fight for the eighth seed seems like a futile cause with the Celtics looming as the eventual opponent, but few teams could have beaten the Bulls on Wednesday night, galvanized by White's stellar evening. His stat line is a reminder that White should be considered as a favorite to win Most Improved Player honors.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Dealing with ankle injury

    Caruso generated six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal during 17 minutes of Wednesday's 131-116 win over the Hawks. He noted after the game that he sprained his left ankle during the contest, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

    Caruso missed portions of the first half after a collision with teammate Andre Drummond. While Caruso managed to return to the game, he was subbed out with 9:43 to play in the third quarter and didn't check back in. Caruso's status is certainly up in the air for Friday's matchup with Miami in the final game of the Play-In Tournament and is worth monitoring ahead of the contest. If Caruso ends up sitting, Javonte Green, Torrey Craig and Dalen Terry would be the main candidates to take on more minutes.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Checks back in

    Caruso (foot) has returned to Wednesday's Play-In Tournament game against the Hawks,

    Caruso took a brief trip to the locker room late in the first quarter after colliding with Andre Drummond. However, Caruso has checked back into the contest and should be good to go.

  • Bulls' Alex Caruso: Exits game

    Caruso went back to the locker room during Wednesday's game against the Hawks with what appeared to be a right foot injury, Cody Westerlund of 670TheScore.com reports.

    Andre Drummond stepped on Caruso's foot in transition and ran over Caruso at half-court. Caruso quickly removed himself from the game and limped back to the locker room. He should be considered questionable to return.

  • Bulls' Andre Drummond: Set to play against Atlanta

    Drummond (ankle) is available for Wednesday's Play-In Tournament game versus the Hawks, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Drummond has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday after missing Chicago's previous three contests with a left ankle sprain. Drummond has averaged 9.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 18.5 minutes across his previous 10 appearances.

  • Bulls' Javonte Green: Headed to bench Wednesday

    Green will come off the bench for Wednesday's Play-In Game against the Hawks, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Green started in Chicago's regular-season finale with the Bulls resting some of their main players. However, he'll return to a reserve role Wednesday. Over his last four bench appearances, he's averaged 10.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 21.0 minutes per game.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Full go Wednesday

    Dosunmu (quadriceps) will play and is not under a minutes restriction for Wednesday's Play-In Tournament game against the Hawks, Will Gottlieb of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Dosunmu missed the last four games of the regular season with a right quad contusion, but he's been given the green light for Wednesday's Play-In Game. He should be expected to slot back into the starting shooting guard role. Dosunmu made 27 consecutive starts before sustaining the injury, averaging 16.9 points, 4.9 assists and 3.4 rebounds during that stretch.

  • Bulls' Ayo Dosunmu: Officially listed as questionable

    Dosunmu (quad) is considered questionable for Wednesday's Play-In Tournament game against Atlanta.

    Dosunmu expressed optimism earlier Tuesday that he will be available for Wednesday's contest, but his status is nonetheless undetermined. The 24-year-old has not taken the court since April 7, but his excellent two-way play was pivotal down the stretch in keeping Chicago afloat, as the Bulls carry a minus-1.9 net rating on the season -- ranking 21st in the league.

  • Bulls' Julian Phillips: Remains out

    Phillips (foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Play-In Game against the Hawks.

    Phillips missed the final 16 games of the regular season due to a right midfoot sprain and doesn't have a timetable to return. Barring the Bulls making a surprise run in the postseason, Phillips' 2023-24 campaign is likely over.
