  • Darling pinching himself with call from Hawks Oct 22, 2014 5:17 PM

  • Bulls hoping Butler will recover quickly Oct 22, 2014 4:47 PM
    Jimmy Butler's sprained left thumb should be a minor injury. But it's tough to ignore memories of last year when Butler missed time in training camp with a bruised knee and never found his shooting stroke during the regular season.

  • Bulls voted against changing draft lottery Oct 22, 2014 4:57 PM

  • Rozner: Bears' Trestman failing on football decisions Oct 22, 2014 5:26 AM

  • Strong finish for Wheaton’s Streelman Oct 21, 2014 6:01 PM
    Chicago’s golf season may be in its final days as far as 2014 goes, but you wouldn’t know it by developments over the last few days. Len Ziehm takes a look at the PGA Tour, where Wheaton’s Kevin Streelman made a final-round charge in the Shriners Hospital for Children’s Open in Las Vegas on Sunday. Ziehm also has the latest on the LPGA's International Crown event coming in 2016 to Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove.

  • Blackhawks power their way to shutout victory Oct 21, 2014 11:12 PM
    Sure it’s been fantastic that the Blackhawks have been outshooting their opponents by enormous margins lately. But that quantity hasn’t led to quality and certainly hasn’t led to the goals piling up for the Hawks, whether playing at even strength or on the power play. That’s why for the past week or so, coach Joel Quenneville could not have stressed more the need for his guys to get to the net and cause some traffic.

    Monday's Bulls-Cavaliers game was merely a dress rehearsal for the Oct. 31 home opener. But the first meeting between expected Eastern Conference powers highlighted some interesting issues heading into the regular season.

  • Imrem: It’s doubtful that Trestman can be forceful with Bears Oct 21, 2014 9:00 PM
    If Marc Trestman is this reluctant to be forceful with the media, why does anyone expect him to be more forceful with his players?
