Korver: new Bulls shooting teacher?

Is Kyle Korver putting in hours as a Bulls shooting coach?
According to Fred Mitchell of Chicago Breaking Sports, and several players, yes.

Hes a phenomenal shooter. He helps some of us work on our jump-shooting, Bulls forward Taj Gibson said. He works with us, even after practice."

Korver is willing to share his knowledge of the proper shooting techniques and mechanics with his teammates. Gibson went on to say that Korver gives critiques on how to adjust his teammate's shots and help them go in. (Chicago Breaking Sports)

DeAngelo Hall calls Cutler a 'clown'

DeAngelo Hall joined 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. for an interview to comment on last year's Albert Haynesworth vs. Mike Shanahan saga, and Jay Cutler came up in the course of the conversation. Hall happily recalled picking off Cutler four times during last season's Week 7 win over the Bears.

"Man, Ive never had more than two interceptions in a game, so to go out and get four in a half, I was like man, this is unreal! Im on the sideline like wow, this is pretty amazing!

Hall also had choice words for Cutler saying, "Jay is definitely a clown." (SportsRadioInterviews.com)

The wait for Otto Porter Jr. continues after another injury setback

The wait for Otto Porter Jr. continues, and continues to lengthen.

Porter, who has been out since Nov. 9, now will be reassessed in four weeks after visiting Dr. Bob Anderson, a noted foot and ankle specialist, Monday in Green Bay, Wis. In a release, the Bulls said Anderson confirmed Porter’s bone injury in his left foot. In a new development, the team said the “healing response (is) consistent with a small fracture that has become more clearly defined with repeated imaging over the last five weeks.”

Porter will remain in his walking boot for now. And the Bulls’ depth at small forward, which also currently features Chandler Hutchison out with a bruised shoulder, will continue to be tested.

Kris Dunn will remain in a starting role until Hutchison returns. Denzel Valentine also has taken advantage of his opportunity created by these injuries.

However, Porter’s absence is significant.
