Tyrus Thomas is out for tonight’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks because of the flu.
Thomas was sent home before the morning shootaround at the Berto Center after seeing trainer Fred Tedeschi and was examined by a team doctor in the afternoon. He remained at home resting and didn’t make the trip to the United Center.
Rookie Taj Gibson will start at power forward.
Guard Jannero Pargo will suit up, but he’s still bothered by a sore back and coach Vinny Del Negro may try to avoid using him.
