(CBS) The banged up Bulls host the New Jersey Nets at the United Center tonight and it’s still unclear exactly who will be playing.
Head coach Tom Thibodeau said this morning that Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah are gametime decisions. Rose participated in the full shootaround and could play in his first game in over a week as he nurses a toe injury. Rose said he knows his big left toe won’t be 100 percent at any point this season, but he will play on it.
Noah will try to return after missing Saturday’s game with a sprained ankle. Gibson was ruled out with a sprained ankle.
The Bulls did not reveal Luol Deng’s MRI results and Thibodeau said he was seeing a doctor Monday morning. The small forward has a wrist injury and is likely out tonight.
John Lucas III is a gametime decision with a sore groin.
