Bulls activate Pippen from IL

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – The Chicago Bulls activated veteran Scottie
Pippen on Tuesday from the injured list.

Pippen, a versatile guard/forward who has appeared in just 12 games this
season, returns slightly over a month after he underwent arthroscopic surgery
on his left knee. He underwent the procedure on December 12 and was placed on
the IL several days later.

The 38-year-old Pippen is averaging 7.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists
this season.

In order to make room for Pippen on the team’s active roster, Chris Jefferies
was placed on the injured list with a sprained left ankle. Jeffries was
acquired from Toronto in the trade that brought Antonio Davis and Jerome
Williams over to the Bulls. He has appeared in 10 games with Chicago.
