Gasol (back) did not practice Tuesday, ESPN Chicago reports.
Gasol posted a double-double in 30 minutes Saturday against the Bucks as he scored 20 points (5-11 FG, 10-12 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, two assists and three blocks.
Gasol will start for the Bulls this season, and should see plenty of minutes despite the presence of Taj Gibson off the bench, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reports. "Pau is a worker," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "We were talking about his experience with the Lakers and with Phil (Jackson), they didn't have very many days off. He played a lot of minutes, and that's what he is used to. He's used to 37 minutes a game."
