Point still stands. Taking a year off to rest/rehab isn't a bad decision, especially when you look at the circumstances the Bulls are in.
It'll be close to a year by the time the playoffs start. What circumstances? They're probably a 5 seed and they'll play a beatable Nets team in the first round. If your best player is months past being medically cleared to play, why not suit up? Even if it is in a bench role, any contribution is helpful. I highly doubt the Bulls ownership would be this lenient were Luol Deng or Carlos Boozer in the same situation.
