The Bulls enter Saturday with a record of 10-35. They have the second worst record in the NBA.
Injuries and losing have been the two constant themes of the year in Chicago. Point guard Kris Dunn, shooting guard Zach LaVine and forwards Bobby Portis and Lauri Markkanen have missed a handful of games with ailments. Swingman Denzel Valentine hasn’t played at all this year due to ankle surgery and has already been ruled out for the season.
To make matters even worse, the Bulls just lost rookie big man Wendell Carter Jr. for 8-to-12 weeks due to a left thumb injury which will require surgery. It has just been that type of season in the Windy City.
When Chicago traded Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves, a rebuild was expected. However, no one thought things would be this bad and slow. As always, though, John Paxson and Gar Forman won’t be held accountable by ownership because they have the job security that we all strive to have.
