WASHINGTON: GUARDS: JOHN WALL hasn't developed much diversity in his offensive game, but he's still really fast and an effective distributor. The improved supporting cast should help him reach the next level, assuming he feels no ill effects from the stress injury in his left knee that will keep him out until late November . . . BRADLEY BEAL is a great shooter, but he can also score off the dribble. Throw in his rebounding ability from the backcourt, and he should contribute in a number of ways as a rookie . . . JORDAN CRAWFORD is a pure scorer, but not an efficient one. He won't be able to hold off Beal for long, if at all . . . A.J. PRICE steps in as Wall's top backup. He'll play limited minutes with the second unit . . . SHELVIN MACK will be battling for a roster spot, most likely with underachieving swingman MARTELL WEBSTER. FORWARDS: TREVOR ARIZA should have no trouble stepping into the starting lineup. He'll at least have a chance to re-find his three-point shot getting drive-and-dish feeds from Wall . . . Nene^ will slide to the four with Emeka Okafor coming in. That means athletic, but raw, JAN VESELY will have to play with the second unit. He can really run the floor, but doesn't help much in the half-court game . . . TREVOR BOOKER is a very good screener on offense who holds his own defensively and on the boards. He still has a chance for a handful of starts if Nene^ or Okafor get hurt . . . CHRIS SINGLETON started a lot of games last year, but the defensive specialist will likely spend this season learning behind Ariza . . . CARTIER MARTIN never saw a shot he didn't like. CENTERS: NENE^ had some trouble with plantar fasciitis last year and playing in the Olympics didn't help. If healthy, he has a chance to be Washington's leading scorer . . . EMEKA OKAFOR will start alongside Nene^. He's the fifth-best option on offense, but holds his own defensively . . . KEVIN SERAPHIN has proven he can hold down a starting job. He'll come off the bench but should still have a significant role.
CHICAGO: GUARDS: The best guess on DERRICK ROSE is a February return. But an ACL injury usually isn't 100 percent until the second full year back . . . With Rose out, KIRK HINRICH figures to play heavy minutes early. He's a defensive specialist who will pass and watch on offense . . . NATE ROBINSON could push Hinrich for minutes. He's the offensive half of that platoon, but Thibodeau almost always leans defense . . . RICHARD HAMILTON will carry a bigger offensive load while Rose is recovering. He's a shadow of his former self . . . MARCO BELINELLI is a nice addition. He's solid defensively, and he brings the long-range shooting Chicago lacks. Don't be surprised if he pushes Hamilton . . . Rookie MARQUIS TEAGUE will mostly sit and watch this year. FORWARDS: After avoiding wrist surgery, LUOL DENG should be Chicago's top scorer while Rose is out. He's the only one on this team who even has a chance to generate his own offense . . . CARLOS BOOZER continues to be a major disappointment. In the past it's been his atrocious defense, but now he's taken a step back offensively as well. He may score more with Rose out, but he'll continue to sit late in close games . . . TAJ GIBSON should be in for a bigger role. With Omer Asik gone, he's one of only two defensively capable bigs on this roster . . . VLADIMIR RADMANOVIC will try to replace some of the three-point shooting they lost when Kyle Korver left . . . JIMMY BUTLER has a puncher's chance at a rotation spot after a good summer. CENTERS: JOAKIM NOAH was still working his way back from that badly sprained ankle this summer. His durability is questionable, but the Bulls will have to lean on Noah for more minutes now that Omer Asik is gone . . . NAZR MOHAMMED steps into Asik's role as Noah's backup. But while Asik was an active defender, Mohammed is more of just a big body with six fouls to give.

*Wizards-Bulls Preview* =======================


Washington (3-23) at Chicago (15-12), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Coming off an unexpected extended break, the Chicago Bulls are hoping to be a bit healthier as they try to bounce back from a pair of poor performances.

Hosting the NBA-worst Washington Wizards should also help.

The Bulls hope to have both Richard Hamilton and Luol Deng back Saturday night against a Wizards team coming off its first victory in nine games.

Chicago (15-12) hasn't played since Tuesday after Wednesday's game versus Indiana was postponed by a snowstorm that slammed the Indianapolis area. The extra time off has given Hamilton and Deng a chance to heal.

Hamilton has missed the last 12 games with a sprained left foot after averaging 13.9 points in starting the first 15. The 14-year veteran has returned to practice and is expected to be a game-time decision.

Deng's status also likely will be determined shortly before tip-off after he injured his right ankle in the Bulls' Christmas game against Houston. He has started all 27 contests, averaging a team-high 17.7 points and ranking third in rebounds at 7.0 per game.

Although Deng went to the bench early Tuesday, he wasn't the only starter to sit out most of the fourth quarter. With his team trailing by as many as 35, coach Tom Thibodeau went to his bench and the Bulls wound up losing 120-97. It was the second straight lopsided defeat for Chicago, which was down by as many as 26 in last Saturday's 92-75 loss in Atlanta.

"If you are not right and don't have an edge, you are not going to win without the right amount of intensity," Thibodeau said after the Rockets shot an opponent season-high 56.1 percent and racked up the most points scored against the Bulls since Nov. 4, 2010.

It was an uncharacteristic performance by Chicago, which ranks among the league leaders in scoring defense (92.1 per game) and defensive field goal percentage (43.1).

The Bulls would seem to have a good chance to regroup against a Wizards team that averages a league-low 89.2 points, though Washington coach Randy Wittman believes his club will have an advantage.

"They're going to be rusty. That's good for us," he said after Friday's 105-97 home victory over Orlando. "We've got to win. We're feeling good. We played well. Let's play again. I don't worry about Chicago."

Despite its offensive struggles, Washington (4-23) showed some signs of life against the Magic in winning for the first time since Dec. 11. The Wizards shot 47.7 percent - their third-best mark of the season - and overcame a 17-point deficit to snap an eight-game losing streak.

"Obviously, a lot of satisfaction in the win, but the way we won it - with what this team's gone through at the start of the year, to go down 25-8 ... for our guys to not put their heads down and grind it out," Wittman said.

Nene had season highs of 23 points and 11 rebounds and Jordan Crawford, coming off the bench for a second straight game, matched a season high with 27 points while going 11 of 16 from the floor. In his last six games, Crawford is averaging 21.8 points - 5.8 better than his team-leading average.

The Wizards, 1-12 away from the nation's capital, haven't faced the Bulls since an 87-84 win in Chicago on April 16, a game both Deng and Derrick Rose sat out. That snapped Washington's seven-game losing streak in the series and also ended its six-game skid at the United Center.

While the Bulls hope Hamilton and Deng can provide a spark offensively, getting Joakim Noah involved also seems crucial. Chicago is 11-2 when Noah, who averages 13.3 points, scores at least 12.
