The Chicago Bulls will be without Superstar PG Derrick Rose for a long while as he will require surgery to repair a torn meniscus.  Rose was not himself this season, shooting 35% from the floor and averaging just 15.9 points per game with 4 assists and 3 rebounds.  Rose did not play at all last season after tearing his ACL in the other knee and the Bulls managed to win 45 games.  Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng led the Bulls to a first round 7 game upset of the Brooklyn Nets before being knocked out by the Miami Heat in 5 games.  However, this season the Bulls do not have Nate Robinson to spark this already dismal offense.Chicago is now forced to rely on Mike Dunleavy to knock down some outside jumpers and Marquis Teague is going to have to prove to ownership that he is ready to play in the NBA.Kirk Hinrich will see a nice boost in fantasy value and is good for double digit points, 4-6 assists and a couple of rebounds a night while knocking down a 3pt shot or 2 each game.Jimmy Butler, when he returns from injury, is going to have to step up and look to become a weapon on offense.  He currently averages just 7.7 shots per game.Some other PGs around the league that have some fantasy value and can "replace" Derrick Rose are Trey Burke, Jordan Crawford, Iman Shumpert Mo Williams and Jarrett Jack.If I am the Chicago Bulls I am looking to trade some of my expensive, but valuable veteran pieces for a shot at an additional draft pick in this STACKED 2014 NBA Draft Class.
