News: Gibson has been sent home from the Bulls' road trip to get his injured ankle examined, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Sending Gibson home during a road trip would imply that he will not play in the Bulls upcoming games Monday in Utah or Tuesday in Denver. The team has another two game road trip on the east coast after those two games, where Gibson could theoretically rejoin the team. If Gibson and teammate Pau Gasol (calf) cannot play, look for Nikola Mirotic to play big minutes and have fantasy value.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson left in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to Portland with a sprained left ankle. Impact: Gibson, who came down on Portland's Wesley Matthews, clutched his ankle and grimaced in pain before he was helped off the court. The 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds coming into the game. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he didn't think it was serious, but Gibson left the Moda Center in a boot and on crutches.(STATS, 01:11am)

News: Gibson sustained a left ankle injury in the third quarter of Friday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. He clutched his ankle and grimaced in pain before he was helped off the court. There was no immediate word on his condition from the Chicago Bulls. Impact: The 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds going into the game. It could be another big blow for the Bulls, who played without Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol and Kirk Hinrich on Friday.(STATS, 11:41pm)

News: Gibson (ankle) suffered a left ankle sprain and will not return to Friday's game. Impact: It looked to be a pretty severe sprain, as Gibson could not leave the court under his own power. Consider him day-to-day for now, but he will likely miss at least a few games. With Pau Gasol (calf) also ailing, Nikola Mirotic may finally start to see the kind of significant frontcourt minutes his skills would typically dictate, making him an intriguing add in the short term.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: Gibson left Friday's game with an apparent left ankle injury, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports. Impact: Gibson needed to be carried off the court by his teammates, and went to the locker room without putting any weight on his injured ankle. It had the look of a serious injury, possibly an Achilles, as he was in significant pain without any signs of rolling his ankle. Further updates will be provided when more news is available.(RotoWire, )

News: Gibson turned in a solid fantasy effort Monday. Impact: Gibson had 20 points, six assists and five rebounds starting in place of the injured Pau Gasol.(STATS, 00:16am)
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
News: Gibson got the start at power forward Monday, scoring 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 FT) with six assists, five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 41 minutes during a win over the Clippers. Impact: He took full advantage of Pau Gasol's absence from the lineup due to a calf injury. Gasol may miss Tuesday's game as well, which should make Gibson a solid play once again in daily leagues.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Gibson scored two points (1-6 FG) to go along with six rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes Saturday against the Pacers. Impact: The Bulls frontcourt was largely overpowered Saturday, so none of them really had a big game. Gibson has scored eight points or less in three of his last four games, but he does have at least six rebounds in each of his last three games. Patience is key for Gibson's fantasy owners because if Joakim Noah or Pau Gasol were to suffer any type of injury, Gibson would be a key contributor.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 6, 2014
News: Gibson had season highs of 23 points and 10 rebounds in a 95-86 win at Milwaukee on Wednesday. Impact: Gibson is averaging 17.8 points on 60.0 percent shooting and 6.3 rebounds in his first four games. With Joakim Noah's status unknown due to illness, the Bulls could give Gibson a third straight start Friday in Philadelphia.(STATS, 01:38am)
