(CBS) The busted-up Bulls will continue on without Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich.

All three will miss Friday night’s Game 3 against the Miami Heat, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed at today’s shootaround.

Speculation about Rose’s return heated up earlier this week after an apparently errant report by Alex Kennedy from Hoops World. But the Bulls point guard continues to sit out from the torn ACL he suffered a year ago.

Deng is still recovering from complications from a spinal tap last week and it’s unclear if he’ll return at all during this series. Hinrich’s status is also in doubt going forward as he continues to recover from a bruised calf.

Meanwhile, the NBA still has yet to announce fines and/or suspensions for Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson after both were objected from their Game 2 loss to the Heat.
