Taj Gibson returned to practice Monday feeling no ill effects from the sore right heel that caused him to miss two games over the weekend.
"I'm feeling good," he said afterward. "The training staff was making sure I don't re-aggravate it, so they made me sit out those last two games.
"I practiced pretty hard today after a tough loss to the Magic. I just want to help the team. We have a long schedule ahead of us. I'm just happy to be back."
Barring any setbacks, Gibson will play in the Bulls' final two preseason games this week, Wednesday at Toronto and Friday against the Indiana Pacers at the United Center.
