KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.

*Bulls-Timberwolves Preview* ============================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Chicago (36-31) at Minnesota (24-43), 7:00 p.m. EDT

After struggling for much of this month, the Chicago Bulls managed to overcome their injuries last time out. A matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves could help keep them heading in the right direction.

The short-handed Bulls will try to earn back-to-back wins for only the second time since the beginning of February on Sunday night by adding to their recent dominance over the Timberwolves.

Still awaiting Derrick Rose's return, Chicago was also without Joakim Noah on Saturday against Central Division-leading Indiana. The Bulls still rallied from a 10-point deficit for an 87-84 win.

Luol Deng had a team-best 20 points, and veteran center Nazr Mohammed was one of four Chicago players to score in double figures in his second start this season.

"Everybody stepped up," forward Taj Gibson said. "We don't have time to worry about injuries. Whoever is out there has to do the job."

Noah is also expected to sit out Sunday's visit to Minnesota because of chronic plantar fasciitis in his right foot, and Kirk Hinrich's status is unclear after he bruised his thigh in Saturday's victory. Chicago has also been playing without veteran guard Richard Hamilton (back spasms).

"That is the way we have to play; we have to do it collectively," said coach Tom Thibodeau, whose team has only won three of its last nine games.

The Bulls (37-31) are 9-14 since the beginning of last month, recording their only consecutive wins over that span on Feb. 28 and March 2. They've dropped five of six on the road.

"We kind of lost momentum in the second half of this season. We're just trying to get guys healthy and keep playing the right way," Gibson said. "We did that (against Indiana), but we have another tough test (Sunday). We've got to keep doing our thing."

The Bulls will try for their seventh win in a row over Minnesota (24-43). Chicago won 87-80 at home in the most recent meeting between the teams Nov. 10, with Nate Robinson's 18 points off the bench leading five players in double figures.

The Timberwolves, 8-28 in their last 36 games, will once again face the Bulls without star forward Kevin Love. Minnesota, though, is coming off a 117-86 win at Phoenix on Friday.

In his fourth game back from a strained calf, Andrei Kirilenko led seven Minnesota players in double figures with 20 points. Chase Budinger had 11 in his second game since a four-month absence with a knee injury.

"Whatever your record is, you want to build on something going down the stretch. We got this road win. Now we head home," coach Rick Adelman said. "We'll play a lot of good teams at home (in upcoming games). We've got some people back and we want to try to build off this."

With a healthier rotation, Minnesota will try to build on its first back-to-back home victories since a five-game run at the Target Center from Nov. 30-Dec. 20. The Bulls, however, have won three straight in Minneapolis, including a 111-100 victory last season.

The Bulls got 31 points and 11 assists from Rose in that win while Deng had 21 points and 11 rebounds.
