Watson may not return until Tuesday

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

C.J. Watson has been hoping to recover from his elbow injury in time play in Monday's game in Memphis. While that remains his goal, coach Tom Thibodeau said he wants his backup point guard to test it in practice before taking the floor in a game.

"Let me qualify that: I will consider a shoot-around a practice," Thibodeau said.

Since the Bulls won't shootaround before Monday's noon start against the Grizzlies, and aren't likely to have a shootaround before hosting the Suns on Tuesday night because they will be playing on back-to-back nights, Watson's return may be pushed back to Friday's game in Cleveland.

Rip Hamilton (groin) could return for Friday's game against the Cavaliers as well.

"He's still day to day," Thibodeau said of Hamilton. "We just want to be real smart with him. We don't want it to re-occur. We want to be sure he's healthy."
