(CBS) While the Bulls are nursing their own injuries, they got a bit of helpful news Tuesday as the Cavaliers announced guard Kyrie Irving will miss tonight’s game at the United Center with a sore knee.

Reports from the Cleveland media indicate that Shaun Livingston will get the start in place of Irving.

Meanwhile, the Bulls will be without forward Taj Gibson, who is expected to miss about two weeks with a sprained MCL. The injury means seldom-used Vladimir Radmanovic and Nazr Mohammed will likely receive more minutes.

Tip-off for tonight’s game is a 7 p.m. It can be seen locally on CSN-Chicago and nationally on NBATV.
