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..
NEW ORLEANS: GUARDS: JRUE HOLIDAY is perfect for head coach Monty Williams. He defends and can create in the half-court set . . . ERIC GORDON didn't want New Orleans to match his deal two offseasons ago, and he spent last year letting everyone know it. If healthy and motivated (two big 'ifs') he's a 20-point scorer . . . TYREKE EVANS will get some starts at the three and come off the bench at times. Either way, he is the kind of aggressive (if sometimes out-of- control) offensive threat this lineup needs . . . Even after an injury-filled season, ANTHONY MORROW's shooting could earn him a rotation spot . . . AUSTIN RIVERS was overmatched last season, to the point where he didn't seem to belong in the NBA. It's tough to see the win-now Pels relying on him often. FORWARDS: ANTHONY DAVIS was overwhelmed by Williams' complex defensive schemes, and opponents consistently took him out of plays with screen-and-rolls at him. Williams will surely use some of his new talent to allow Davis to roam more on defense . . . RYAN ANDERSON's defensive shortcomings could lead to a drop in playing time, but his shooting and the spacing it creates is too valuable to this offense . . . AL-FAROUQ AMINU will likely split time with Tyreke Evans at the three. He's more valuable defensively, and is starting to show some signs of improvement on offense . . . DARIUS MILLER has a shot to break into the rotation if his defense improves . . . LANCE THOMAS is a long athlete who is capable of playing some good defensive minutes . . . ARINZE ONUAKU most likely won't see the floor for more than a minute at a time. CENTERS: JASON SMITH might be their most complete defensive big man, and that should be enough to earn him solid minutes . . . GREG STIEMSMA is more off a warm body, but he at least gives them another rim-protecting option . . . JEFF WITHEY will spend most of the season on the bench learning Williams' complex schemes.

*Bulls-Pelicans Preview* ========================


Chicago (23-22) at New Orleans (19-26), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Chicago Bulls wrapped up easily their best month of the season with a road win over a team missing many key players. They'll try to get off to a strong start in February by doing the same.

The New Orleans Pelicans, though, could be welcoming back Anthony Davis on Saturday night against Chicago, and they didn't even need him to beat the Bulls in a thriller in the teams' only meeting this season.

Chicago (23-22) went 11-4 in January despite the absence of injured former MVP Derrick Rose and the trade of former All-Star Luol Deng to Cleveland on Jan. 6.

"We have a roster full of NBA players just like everybody else," guard Jimmy Butler said. "A lot of people sleep on us, but we have a really talented group of guys that do so many things well. When we play together and just as hard as we can, I think we can win a lot of games."

The Bulls looked like they might end the month on a sour note after losing 95-86 at home to Minnesota on Monday and starting a six-game road trip Wednesday against Southwest Division-leading San Antonio.

Instead, Chicago won 96-86 over the Spurs, who were without three starters and top reserve Manu Ginobili. Butler's 19 points led seven players in double figures for the Bulls, who posted a 52-26 scoring advantage in the paint.

"The last 20 games or so, this team has played very hard and very well," coach Tom Thibodeau told the team's website. "I love the spirit of our team. We've got a great fight to us. I see a lot of possibilities for this team, a good fighting spirit. Playing hard, playing together, playing for each other. That goes a long way in this league."

Chicago has also played well in recent trips to New Orleans (19-26), winning five in a row there. The Pelicans, however, pulled out a 131-128 win in triple-overtime at Chicago on Dec. 2, even with Deng scoring 37.

Jrue Holiday converted the deciding three-point play with 2.6 seconds left, and Ryan Anderson scored a career-high 36 points. Holiday hasn't played since Jan. 8 because of a stress fracture in his right tibia, and Anderson is out with a herniated disc.

Starting center Jason Smith is recovering from right knee surgery.

Davis didn't the Bulls with a fractured left hand, and he broke his index finger on that same hand while scoring 30 points and blocking eight shots in a 100-89 win in Cleveland on Tuesday. The Chicago native sat out an 88-77 loss in Minnesota the next night - which snapped New Orleans' three-game win streak - but coach Monty Williams indicated the move was mainly precautionary.

"We could have held him out (Tuesday) night, but he was so adamant about playing that I let him go," Williams said. "So, now we have to be his brains and make sure he doesn't hurt his finger. But he should be ready for our next game."

Davis had 15 points and 10 rebounds in his only game against Chicago, a 96-87 home loss Feb. 19. Eric Gordon had a team-best 20 points in that game and scored 23 in the triple-overtime win in December.

Bulls center Joakim Noah, named to his second All-Star team this week, has double-doubles in seven of his last eight games against New Orleans. He has at least 10 rebounds in 17 straight overall.
