Morris also out with knee soreness. Is that the same knee he had an issue with before? Getting nervous about that one

That sucks.  But with how well the season has gone thus far, it seems we will have the luxury of resting guys to avoid more serious injury and enter the playoffs as healthy as possible.

I would've preferred the C's to sit down the vets anyway being that it's gonna be a packed month.

I'm just hoping this is a minor thing they are just resting him for Pop style.  :(

I'm okay with some guys getting rest against a bad team, but Brad needs to make sure we actually get the W in this one. This is a gimme game with everybody healthy - losing would be really unfortunate.

i figure the tatum and brown will each get 25 shots tonight, and score a bunch.

similarly, smart and rozier may also get 25 shots tonight, but not score quite as much.  ;D

for those posters who wanted to see the kids play more, you may get your wish this evening. should be interesting.

Morris alluded to the team asking him to let them know of ANY kind of soreness and to shut it down for a day-to-day type thing. Why risk any loss for a longer period than might be avoided.

Tonight is also going to be a Yabusele coming out party. Unleash the beast!

TP.
We get to see how would they do as volume scorers. If I am correct the Bulls have no wing defenders on the roster except David Nwaba. It is a truly a good oportunity for us.

Looks like the Celtics are using the Bulls game to create fake injuries to rest their players since the NBA has (cracked down?) on resting players without reason. Seems like a good strategy. I mean, Philly has been able to do it all season long with "shoulder brickitis" and "ol' glass legs," so we might as well use it once.

Im getting extremely irritated with Morris. He's either out injured or has poor conditioning, or he's playing and contributing very little.

He's having one of his most effective seasons with us on a per-minute basis. If you were expecting an All-star, he's not one. But he is and has been a solid player.

I think his 3 point shooting will go up as he gets more open looks. His rebounding numbers have been career-best.

Even with limited minutes I actually feel he is an upgrade over crowder.  We want him healthy for his defense and his ability to create his own shot (for second unit)
