Carlos Boozer still the starter, when healthy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2014) Bulls forward Carlos Boozer continues to miss time with a calf injury, and backup Taj Gibson has put up some solid numbers in his absence. Despite that, coach Tom Thibodeau told the Chicago Tribune Wednesday he does not plan on removing Boozer from the starting lineup when he is healthy enough to play, despite Gibson's strong play. Boozer expects to return from injury Thursday against the Nets. 

Boozer has started each of his 249 games since joining the Bulls in 2010. He is putting up his worst numbers yet this season, averaging just 14.8 points and 8.6 rebounds in 29.9 minutes per game.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

It was Gibson's third straight game playing at least 45 minutes, with all three appearances representing his highest usage totals of the season. He also recorded five assists and one block in Tuesday's win. Gibson has averaged 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds over 51 games played.


Taj Gibson seeing a dip in playing time?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Bulls forward Taj Gibson has been taking on a larger minutes load recently, but that trend has slowed in recent days.

Gibson had been taking some of teammate Carlos Boozer's minutes over the last few weeks, and Boozer finally complained in the press about it recently. That could explain why Gibson is averaging 26.5 minutes per game in three February contests, after playing 31.4 minutes in January games.
