CHICAGO: GUARDS: After playing it very safe and sitting out all of last spring, DERRICK ROSE should pretty much be his old self. Of course, he'll have to knock some rust off early in the year . . . JIMMY BUTLER was an iron man during last year's playoffs, and his role will only grow this season. His defense and energy, as well as ability to get to the line, could make Luol Deng expendable . . . MIKE DUNLEAVY is in line for the sixth man role, primarily as a long-range threat . . . With Rose's return, KIRK HINRICH slides back to the bench. His playing time will be especially limited with Dunleavy taking up minutes at the two . . . MARQUIS TEAGUE will continue to be used only in garbage time unless Hinrich ends up getting hurt or traded. FORWARDS: LUOL DENG is back on the trading block, as the Bulls learned life isn't so bad without him now that Jimmy Butler has emerged. His offensive role could be slightly reduced . . . CARLOS BOOZER will likely be amnestied next summer, so for all intents and purposes this is a contract year. He's likely to still be a disaster defensively, which means he's a part-time player under defensive-minded head coach Tom Thibodeau . . . TAJ GIBSON will finish games and likely take over Boozer's spot a year from now. He's a superior defender and, while he doesn't have Boozer's range, he's a capable finisher around the rim . . . Rookie TONY SNELL is a Thibodeau kind of player, a long-armed, athletic perimeter defender. He's unlikely to ever do much on offense though. CENTERS: JOAKIM NOAH may be consistently banged up, but he's capable of playing through the pain. Depending on the Bulls' playoff position, he might sit some games late in the year, but Thibodeau isn't shy about playing him 35 minutes per night . . . NAZR MOHAMMED is back as a designated screener on offense and hacker on defense..
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON is turning into something of a one-man army as the roster around him crumbles. As good as he is as a quick playmaker who can knock down an open three, his supporting cast is lacking . . . EVAN FOURNIER is better than RANDY FOYE now, and he's certainly a bigger part of Denver's future. Fournier proved surprisingly ready for the NBA last season. While Foye brings more scoring power to a team that suddenly lacks offense, he's both inefficient and one-dimensional . . . NATE ROBINSON will provide instant offense and lead the second unit . . . ANDRE MILLER will lose a few minutes this year, but the 37-year-old still has good basketball left. FORWARDS: Coming off a late-season ACL tear, DANILO GALLINARI will be lucky to make it back by December . . . KENNETH FARIED will likely never develop into anything more than an energy guy and high-volume rebounder, but he's good at what he does . . . WILSON CHANDLER can shoot and defend multiple positions. With Gallinari a question mark, he could be in for a much bigger role this year . . . DARRELL ARTHUR is an interesting second-unit player. He's an athlete who was starting to show some skill in Memphis before getting hurt . . . Gunning wingman JORDAN HAMILTON may get a longer look in the second half of the season . . . QUINCY MILLER is likely ticketed for more D-League action . . . ANTHONY RANDOLPH is a lost cause. CENTERS: The time has arrived for JAVALE MCGEE. The front office wants him on the floor full-time. For all the knucklehead plays, he's still an incredible athlete in a massive 7-foot frame . . . Talk of J.J. HICKSON potentially starting is absurd. A brutal defender unable to play within the flow of an offense, he's a second-unit talent . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is Plan B behind McGee. The 7-footer can defend and set screens.

*Bulls-Nuggets Preview* =======================


Chicago (6-3) at Denver (4-6), 10:30 p.m. EDT

While it wasn't pretty, the Chicago Bulls managed to keep their winning streak alive with a gritty effort their last time out.

Coach Tom Thibodeau's team will have to get by without one of its best defenders going forward.

Jimmy Butler will miss the first of several games Thursday night when the Bulls open their annual circus trip against former teammate Nate Robinson and the Denver Nuggets.

Chicago (6-3) has followed a 1-3 start with five straight victories, a stretch during which it has limited opponents to an average of 81.8 points. Chicago held Charlotte to 36.3 percent shooting in Monday's 86-81 win, but that result came at a cost.

Butler, averaging 11.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and a team-leading 1.8 steals, suffered a sprained right big toe and will not accompany the team on its six-game road swing. He is listed as week to week.

"Jimmy is someone we're definitely going to miss, especially with his energy and defense," Derrick Rose told the team's official website. "He's been knocking down shots. But the way our team is, if one guy goes down, the other guy has to step up and do a great job. That's Mike Dunleavy, Kirk (Hinrich) or myself if I'm playing the two. We've just got to fill in for him."

Rose has struggled to regain his MVP form after missing all of last season with a torn ACL, posting career lows of 15.0 points on 34.4 percent shooting and 4.5 assists per game. He had 12 points and shot 4 of 13 against the Bobcats, his second game back since sitting out Friday with a hamstring injury.

"It was a tough, hard-fought game and I liked that Derrick showed a lot of perseverance," Thibodeau said. "He had timely buckets late and made some big buckets for us. That was huge. Each game he has gotten better and better. I am good with where he is."

The Bulls may need a big game from Rose as they try to end their woes in Denver, which has taken 12 of 13 in the series at home, including the last seven by an average of 15.0 points. The Nuggets have won the past four matchups overall, though Rose missed all of them.

The Bulls are surely looking forward to reuniting with Robinson, who joined the Nuggets (4-6) after spending last season in Chicago and averaging 16.3 points in the playoffs. The 5-foot-9 guard has been dealing with a wrist injury, averaging 4.2 points in limited minutes over the last six games, but he's hoping to be ready Thursday.

"I play through all injuries if I can," Robinson told the Nuggets' official website. "I love the game too much."

The Nuggets return home looking to avoid a third straight loss after falling 115-113 at Oklahoma City on Monday. Ty Lawson had 29 points while J.J. Hickson scored 18 to go with 19 boards.

Denver led for most of the game before shooting 6 of 21 and getting outscored 32-21 in the fourth quarter. The Nuggets, whose 71.0 free-throw percentage ranks near the bottom of the NBA, hit a season-worst 58.1 percent (25 of 43) from the foul line.

"We watched a lot of film and talked as a group about winning plays, especially in the fourth quarter, that allowed them to win," coach Brian Shaw said. "Apart from that, we spent a lot of time shooting free throws just trying to get guys to understand that part of it is mental."

The Nuggets are averaging 112.3 points during a three-game home winning streak.
