i hope youre right
not to mention his grandma died so he's been taking time off for that too. Amare missed mad time when his brother died too.
Thibs has said he could probably play right now but they want to wait til after the All-Star break because the Bulls don't desperately need him right now. They need him down the stretch when the games mean more, and obviously then the playoffs.
Obviously the guy is sort of injury prone but that's the point, conserve him so he doesn't take the wear and tear all year then play him when sh*t really matters.
