At the start of training camp Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau pointed to Wednesday night.
The Bulls’ late tipoff against the Western Conference powerhouse Thunder marked the next-to-last exhibition a game in which Thibodeau said that starters would play regular-season minutes and the rotation would take a more permanent shape.
That’s tough to do when All-Star center Joakim Noah remains sidelined with a sore groin and prominent reserve Kirk Hinrich has yet to be cleared from a concussion.
Thibodeau said Wednesday was Noah’s first day doing basketball drills.

Rose didn't play in a single game last season, due to injury, but now he's criticizing a team that reached the conference finals in 2013 instead of his own?
