Bulls Injury Update: Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler are listed as "probable" for tonight

Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls have already been dealing with injuries through the early NBA season, but they are all listed as "probable" for tonight's game against the Orlando Magic. So far, the Bulls have yet to play a game with an entirely healthy roster.
Both Rose and Gibson missed Saturday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after suffering ankle injuries opening night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to NBC Sports. Additionally, Jimmy Butler sat out the first two games with a sprained thumb.
Gibson spoke about his injury on Monday:
It just swelled up. It was already in pain that game, but I just kept trying to play through it and it just swelled up on me real bad later on that night on the plane. The next morning it was just extremely painful. But that's a part of it. Just got to try and get through it. Training staff has been icing it, saying the usual things, try and play tomorrow.
The Bulls are the favorites to make the Eastern Conference Finals this year, so it's important that they don't sustain any long-term injuries. Tonight's game against the Orlando Magic should be a good opportunity for Coach Thibs to figure out his minute-by-minute rotation, as well as determine how healthy each of his players look.
