CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Bulls forward Tyrus Thomas would not reveal his reasons for skipping Wednesday's practice, but said a recent drop in playing time had nothing to do with it.
Thomas was a no-show after playing just under nine foul-plagued minutes in Tuesday's win over Memphis, drawing a two-game suspension from the team that started when Chicago hosted Cleveland on Thursday. It was the second time in three games he played fewer than 10 minutes.
``That wasn't the reason for me missing practice,'' he said.
Thomas said he had a ``nice, long conversation'' with interim coach Jim Boylan that ``broke some barriers.''
