The Bulls’ push for a playoff spot took a significant hit Thursday as an MRI exam on Dwyane Wade’s right (shooting) elbow showed a broken bone in the joint in addition to a sprain that will sideline him for the rest of the regular season, the Bulls announced.
Wade left in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s 98-91 loss to the Grizzlies with the injury, telling reporters afterward that “I knew it was something a little bit more just because of what I heard.”
“We should have won this game,” Thomas said, via ESPN. “We should have won [Sunday] night [in Phoenix]. We can’t be experimenting in Game 63.
“It’s just the way we lost tonight was unacceptable. We lost the game in the last 15 minutes of the game. We played a really good game up until the last 15 minutes. And that’s the players’ fault, the coaches’ fault, that’s everybody in this locker room’s fault. We could have done a lot better.”
Thomas and company have now lost two of their last three games since a thrilling win over the Cavaliers last Wednesday. Despite the small slump, Thomas understands his team is still a contender.
“We’re only three games back (of the Eastern Conference lead). It’s not Baseball Jerseys Cheap the end of the season,” Thomas said. “We could go on a five-game winning streak starting next game. You never know. That’s how fast things can change. But we have to figure it out. We will. We can’t panic, but tonight Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys hurt. It hurt me, I know that.”
