Derrick Rose's turf toe has taken a turn for the worse, and he's expected to sit out in this game against the Wizards. In terms of wins, the Bulls couldn't ask for a better opponent to lose Rose against, however with C.J. Watson and Richard Hamilton likely still out the depth at guard and particularly point guard is perilously thin.
The Bulls have signed Mike James out of the D-League to fill in tonight and add guard depth.
Where does the offense come from without Rose?
The Bulls will need to rely on Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, a heavy amount of effort points and solid execution on both ends.
It's tough to imagine the Bulls winning without a PG, but the Wizards are the worst team in the NBA, so they'll still have a pretty good shot at it.
[apologize for the brief thread, but it was all I could throw together before leaving for the game to love it live. Detailed recap coming tomorrow].
