Bulls update: The Bulls have had a turbulent season after firing coach Fred Hoiberg and replacing him with assistant Jim Boylen, who ruffled feathers on the team with his demanding practice regimen. But the Bulls have won three of their past five games. They are down a few contributors, including former Wolves guard Zach Lavine, who is out because of a left ankle sprain. Bobby Portis is also out because of a sprained right ankle. … Former Wolves guard Kris Dunn recently returned from a left knee injury that kept him out most of the season. He has played in the past seven games and is averaging 14.0 points per game and 5.6 assists.
