Big game in an hour, Bulls fans. A true measuring stick..
Here's what to expect:
-Luol Deng is a no-go. He warmed up a bit, but will be sitting this one out. This injury is all about pain-threshhold, as Doctors have informed him that the injury cannot be made worse by playing as it is already torn. Apparently it is still too painful to go. That being the case, LeBron should have a much easier time tonight on both ends than he normally would, and that doesn't bode well for the Bulls.
-Rip Hamilton is a game-time decision. With both Rip and Lu out of this game, the Bulls don't really stand a chance in my opinion. Not sure if it's smart for Rip to play, as he seems to aggravate his groin injury pretty much every game. Although the team is saying this is a new injury, a bruised thigh-bone, suffered in the Indiana loss. No Rip, no W. Period.
-CJ Watson apparantly has a wrist-injury. Not sure when that happened, but he's a no-go. Looks like Derrick will be playing 40 minutes tonight, turf-toe and all.
Should be a battle. Follow me on Twitter as I will be live tweeting pretty much the whole game.
Also, I will be posting updates here if there are any significant developments.
Stay tuned for a recap after the game. I will also be posting a belated article on the disgusting home loss to the pacers.
