The Chicago Bulls have the best record in all the NBA at 15-3. They have a two and a half game lead in the Eastern Conference over Orlando, and only the 13-3 Oklahoma City Thunder have a winning percentage that comes close right now. The league’s reigning MVP Derrick Rose may not play tonight against Deron Williams and the 5-12 New Jersey Nets; he’ll be a game time decision. Luol Deng will sit out with a sprained left wrist. That means the Bulls, the team which had the best record in the NBA last year, could be without their two best players.
Rose, who has seen his Bulls go 4-1 in the past five games without him, says the toe “is never going to be right this year.” But he “felt decent” during Monday’s shootaround. Deng’s injury issues may keep him out for awhile. Joakim Noah is questionable/probable, but will likely go tonight. Taj Gibson is out, and the injuries are piling up for Chicago. Deng hasn’t missed a game since March 30, 2010, so this ends a very significant streak.
