After serving his one-game suspension for a profanity-laced tirade against coach Vinny Del Negro, Tyrus Thomas was back on the practice court Monday and will be back in the rotation when the Bulls play the Indiana Pacers Tuesday night in Indianapolis.
Thomas declined to speak with the media following practice. Del Negro said the incident is in the past and Thomas is back in his good graces.
"We've got to move on from there," Del Negro said. "We've got a game tomorrow night; let's focus in on that. For me, that stuff's in the past."
Said point guard Derrick Rose: "He apologized right after that happened, just saying he was sorry and stuff like that, so we got that out the way. Now, we're focused on just winning games. That was in the past."
Luol Deng didn't practice with a right shoulder issue, but is expected to play against the Pacers.
