During last night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Taj Gibson suffered a knee injury that could sideline him for two weeks. The Chicago Bulls' guard suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and had to leave the game. Unless more damage is discovered, Gibson should be back sooner rather than later, but it's still a tough blow for the already short-handed Bulls.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Gibson got an MRI after the game which confirmed a sprained knee. Fortunately, no additional damage was discovered, but the Bulls will continue to evaluate. Gibson initially tried to play through the injury, but he couldn't do so.
The Bulls are already without numerous players including Derrick Rose and Richard Hamilton. Gibson makes the third big-time player to go down this season. Yet, the Bulls are still in play-off contention, still playing strong - despite a blow-out loss to the Thunder.
Gibson is averaging 7.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game this season. In his career, he has averaged 7.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
