Moore Active vs. Pacers

Tuesday, March 29 

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reported Moore will play against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.


Moore Provides Valuable Backcourt Depth 

Moore was averaging only 7.7 points per game this season before the injury, but he has provided Chicago with a scoring spark in the backcourt during some of his recent efforts:

Recent E'Twaun Moore Scoring Performances

March 10 San Antonio Spurs 20 8-of-12
March 7 Milwaukee Bucks 16 6-of-11

At his best, Moore can shoot from three-point range and beat defenders off the dribble, and he is versatile enough to play either point guard or shooting guard. Perhaps most importantly, he is a source of injury insurance for the fragile Derrick Rose and has taken on more responsibility since the Bulls traded Kirk Hinrich in February.

Jimmy Butler, Rose, Nikola Mirotic, Taj Gibson, Mike Dunleavy Jr. and Pau Gasol have all missed time this season, and former NBA Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah is out for the season with a shoulder injury.

The Bulls need to be healthy if they plan on making that late charge, and they may have to play LeBron James and the same Cleveland Cavaliers squad that knocked them out of last year’s playoffs in the first round if they get there.

Chicago probably won't have much of a chance in that hypothetical series if it continues to suffer physical setbacks.
