The Bulls were playing a tough game against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, but ended up losing 98-91. Unfortunately, Chicago also looks to have lost Dwyane Wade who suffered an elbow injury in the third quarter. Wade tried to play through the injury but came out of the game in the fourth quarter due to pain. He should be receiving an MRI on Thursday. If Wade misses significant time, the Bulls will struggle to fight for that last playoff spot.
