Gibson, Miller sit out practice

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Taj Gibson (plantar fasciitis) and Brad Miller sat out practice on Tuesday afternoon but both are expected to play on Thursday against the Heat.

"We just went over things," Bulls head coach Vinny Del Negro said. "We'll hopefully get everybody back, have a good practice [Wednesday]. We walked through some things about [Monday] night's game and just tried to drill on some things I thought were important for [Wednesday]."

The Bulls need Gibson and Miller on the floor as they chase down the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The pair each had 10 points and 12 rebounds in Monday night's win over the Rockets.
