Thomas a game-time decision

Tyrus Thomas was on the court shooting about two hours before tip-off of the Bulls-Cavaliers game tonight in Cleveland and is preparing to play. But whether or not he does will be a game-time decision.

“I want to see him warm up before deciding,” Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said.

Thomas said he was much better today, but said was as sick as he’s ever been a couple of days ago. He said he decided to fly to Cleveland after being examined by a Bulls physician.

“I went to see Dr. [Kathy] Weber,” Thomas said. “She released me. She told me I was cool.”

If Thomas does play, he’ll come off the bench. Rookie Taj Gibson will start at power forward.

“I’m here to support the team, however it is,” Thomas said. “Cheer, play, whatever. That’s what I’m here for.”
