At the quarter mark of the 2019-20 regular season for the Chicago Bulls, what is the ideal way to patch up Jim Boylen’s rotation?

The Chicago Bulls aren’t doing great 20 games into the 2019-20 regular season. They sit in the bottom spot in the Central Division standings. And there’s not much hope that lies ahead that they will find themselves in a spot to separate themselves from the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the near future.

In the midst of a myriad of injuries, we should also consider all the depth problems the Bulls are going through at the moment. But any players that are returning soon for the Bulls will be considered with the proper spot that they should be in once they are back in the lineup.

Yet, the Bulls enter a key Dec. 2 road showdown against the Sacramento Kings with plenty on the line. The Bulls carry a record of 6-14 into the third leg of this three-game Western Conference road trip, this time against the Kings. If the Bulls lose against the Kings on Dec. 2, then they will have lost all three games in what was a manageable road trip out West.

Somehow, the Bulls are only 2.5 games back from the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference playoff race for the eight seed. Beating the Kings is just the first step to the Bulls getting on the path to a legitimate playoff run. They need to fix head coach Jim Boylen’s rotation through and through, since there seems to be so many wrong decisions he makes on a nightly basis.

Consistency and competency are hard to find for the Bulls this season, and a lot of that blame falls on Boylen’s shoulders. But there is still a chance to improve from here on out.

Here’s a look into how to fix the Chicago Bulls and head coach Jim Boylen’s rotation as we reach the one-quarter mark of the 2019-20 regular season.
