On Thursday, the Bulls vs. Spurs live stream online and TV game will be shown for fans following the 2016 NBA season. These are two teams amongst those contending for playoff spots in both the Eastern and Western Conference. Chicago is clinging to the No. 8 and final postseason spot and will need to keep winning in order to prevent several teams below them from taking the spot away. The San Antonio Spurs are still the second-best team in the West and overall, so they’ll try to keep pace with the league-leading Golden State Warriors. Tonight’s 2016 NBA game live streaming and televised coverage comes from TNT networks around the United States.
According to Chicago Tribune on March 10, there was good news for the Bulls from Dr. James Andrews on Thursday as the orthopedic surgeon said there were no new issues for Jimmy Butler’s left knee. While Butler won’t be a part of tonight’s lineup against San Antonio, the team had planned for him to resume workouts today and “return to play when appropriate.” Butler had recently missed 11 games due to the knee injury and then returned against the Houston Rockets this past weekend. However, swelling occurred in the knee after Butler practiced this past Sunday, so he sat out the team’s home win over Milwaukee and then got a consultation from Andrews to get clarification over any potential issues. The good news for Butler and the Bulls is also that their team physician has said Butler’s knee is “structurally sound.”
He’ll be on the sidelines for tonight’s game as his team tries to get a major upset over the Spurs, a team that is 30-0 on their home court this season. San Antonio is currently without their longtime star Tim Duncan, and had been without Manu Ginobli, who recently returned to action. They’ve gone 4-1 over their past five games and are coming off a recent victory over Minnesota 116-91. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 29 points while getting seven rebounds in the home win. Tonight the Spurs will try to capture their 55th win of the season in order to keep pace with Golden State. As of right now, San Antonio trails the Warriors in the Western Conference standings by 3-1/2 games heading into tonight’s contest.
