The marker board was where Thursday's schedule was posted and it didn't say "day off" or "take a whirlpool" or "Rasual Butler Appreciation Day."
Instead it read, "Treatment at 2, practice at 4." After all, Chicago hosts the Indiana Pacers at noon Saturday.
The Bulls rarely practiced after back-to-back games this season, but this was a clear sign the regular season is over.
