I believe the Bulls still have a chance. Although D Rose probably won’t be seeing many, if any minutes at all for the rest of the season, they still have Pau Gasol as a scoring option. Unfortunately, Jimmy Butler will also be out for 3-6 weeks with an elbow injury. The Bulls playoff run really depends on how healthy these guys are. There a several healthy contenders in the east, including the Cavs, Raptors, Hawks and the Wizards. The real question is will the Bulls be able to maintain that 3rd seed. Cleveland is right behind them and Washington isn’t too far behind either. If I’m a Bulls fan, I’d be worried.
