CHICAGO (AP) - Given all the gasps around Chicago after Derrick Rose indicated he might not play this season, the All-Star break appears to be coming at a good time for the Bulls.
They can take a deep breath. They can hardly breathe easy, though. Until their sidelined superstar point guard is back to tying opponents in knots, they can forget about that.
For now, the Bulls are doing what they can without him, and all things considered, they're not in a bad spot even after dropping four of five.
They're fifth in the Eastern Conference at 30-22, 1 1/2 games behind first-place Indiana in the Central Division, and a playoff run doesn't seem out of the question.
