Denzel Valentine limped into the home locker room early Saturday evening, ice wrapped all around the left ankle in the aftermath of a first good run on the track earlier in the day. “I haven’t been able to do lateral stuff yet,’’ the Bulls guard/forward said. “But straight-ahead stuff has been pretty good. Just have to take baby steps. I didn’t think it’d take this long. But the bone bruise really was triggering my pain. It is what it is. It’s frustrating. But at least we know now that I’m headed in a good direction rather than just wondering.’’ Next to Valentine a few chairs down sat big man Lauri Markkanen. The right elbow sprain is in week five of an expected six-to-eight week healing window. “Lauri is doing a little bit more,’’ coach Fred Hoiberg said. “Still no contact for either of those guys.’’ Which means still a lot of uncertainty when they return. The one certainty until … [Read more...] about Bulls guard Zach LaVine needs to play selfish now, but change is coming soon

By JONATHAN [email protected] – James Montgomery says he’ll never forget the moment when he was wowed by a musical performance and came to the conclusion that the stage life was for him. He was 15 years old and saw Detroit-based saxophonist and songwriter Crispin Cioe playing live blues harmonica, transforming a small brass instrument into the centerpiece of his set. “I was just so struck. I was a big rock and roll fan, hearing the harmonica for the first time, I’d never heard that,” Montgomery said in an interview with The Times. “It hit a really visceral chord, not to sound cliché, but it connected me to my soul and it was unbelievable.”Within six months, Montgomery was playing harmonica and fronting a band that – even though he was still in high school – was opening for national touring acts such as MC5 and Iggy and the Stooges. Despite still being a teenager, Montgomery was already drawing … [Read more...] about James Montgomery decided to play the blues when he was just a teenager. Now 40 years later he’s still going strong, and entering the RI Music Hall of Fame.
BREAKING – Sen. Chuck Schumer embraces an idea in today’s E.J. Dionne column, telling Playbook in a statement: “The idea that’s begun circulating, to do a discharge petition on immigration reform in the House, is a good one and I would urge House Democrats to take it up. It’s clear a majority of the House supports immigration reform. A minority faction has scared Republicans out of acting even though large parts of the Republican base, including business and religious groups, support the bill, making a discharge petition an appropriate remedy.” --E.J. says in his column, “John Boehner’s sunshine band”: “Supporters [of immigration reform] should be thinking about a discharge petition to force Boehner’s hand — or maybe even to allow him to do what he’s said privately he’d like to do. If a majority of House members signed it, there could be a successful vote for the immigration bill the Senate already … [Read more...] about SNOW DAY EDITION — OBAMACARE’S BIG DAY — SCHUMER RAISES IMMIGRATION PRESSURE — GOP RELIEVED debt-ceiling fight over — TNR ON CHRISTIE: ‘It’s not just the bridge’
