Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Pau Gasol will likely be out the next few games.
This doesn’t look good for the Bulls’ playoff chances as they’re currently hovering around the cusp of playoff contention in the Eastern conference. Taj Gibson also went down tonight with a hamstring injury and the Bulls are hurting right now. Bobby Portis, Nikola Mirotic and Cristiano Felicio are the only healthy big men left for the Bulls and will all be looking at heavy minutes until Gasol, Gibson and Bairstow can make a return to the court. Bobby Portis put up eight points, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 25 minutes tonight and hopefully he can get it going for owners to close out the season.
