Hot2/26/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Bulls power forward Taj Gibson has averaged 16 points and 6.8 rebounds in six games since Carlos Boozer returned to the starting lineup. He had 21 points, five rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 27 minutes Wednesday against the Warriors.
Insight: Gibson was a 22-10 monster in the three games Boozer missed, and while he hasn't quite reached that level since Boozer returned he has still been a good fantasy option. Gibson has scored in double figures in 17 of his last 18 games and averaged 16.4 ppg in that span.

5/9/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: It's possible that Bulls forward Taj Gibson could be suspended for Friday night's Game 3 against Miami. SOURCE: Chicago Tribune
Insight: The general consensus is that the refs overreacted to some of the physical play on Wednesday night.

A decision on any discipline for Gibson will probably be decided later today.

4/15/2013 6:29:00 PM
Description: Bulls power forward Taj Gibson will be in action Monday versus Orlando, though ESPN Chicago suspects that he'll be on a minutes limit. He's been out with a knee injury since April 2nd.
Insight: Gibson only averages 22 mpg so his ceiling isn't all that high to begin with. With so much of the league on hiatus right now, he could be worth a look in deeper formats.
 
4/11/2013 5:44:00 PM
Description: Chicago forward Taj Gibson (knee) will miss Thursday's game against the Knicks.
Insight: Gibson (7.9 ppg, 5.4 rpg) is dealing with a sprained MCL. The hope is that he'll be back before the playoffs begin in two weeks.

4/3/2013 7:48:00 PM
Description: Bulls big man Taj Gibson aggravated a previous left knee sprain Tuesday night, but K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune says it doesn't sound as serious as the first injury that knocked him out for 10 games.
Insight: The Bulls can ill afford to lose Gibson with Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis) on the sidelines. Gibson hasn't produced big-time fantasy numbers with Noah out but he is important to Chicago's defensive consistency.
 
4/2/2013 10:03:00 PM

3/27/2013 11:34:00 AM

Insight: Gibson's (7.9 ppg, 5.45rpg, 1.4 bpg) has played at least 25 minutes in each of the three games since he returned from a sprained MCL, but it hasn't seemed to hurt starter Carlos Boozer's fantasy production.
 
3/20/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Chicago Bulls backup power forward Taj Gibson took part in Monday's shootaround and is aiming to return on Thursday.
Insight: Gibson's (7.7 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 1.4 bpg) return will put a dent in Carlos Boozer's fantasy production. Boozer has been averaging around 33 minutes per game in Gibson's absence.
