KEY GAME INFORMATION
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.
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..

*Thunder-Bulls Preview* =======================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Oklahoma City (48-17) at Chicago (37-29), 8:00 p.m. EDT

Even with a red-hot Joakim Noah, the Chicago Bulls might have a considerable challenge as they attempt to end their longest homestand of the season with a third consecutive win.

The Oklahoma City Thunder, though, have also struggled to win most of their recent road games despite Kevin Durant's high-scoring efforts and are heading into Monday night's game at the United Center after a lopsided home defeat.

Chicago (37-29) has registered back-to-back wins on its six-game homestand after losing two of the first three contests, and Noah has nearly recorded triple-doubles in each victory. He finished one assist shy in a 111-87 rout of Houston on Thursday and two short in a 94-87 win over Sacramento on Saturday.

"First thing is his game is through the roof right now. His confidence is through the roof," forward Taj Gibson said after Noah had 23 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and five blocks.

Noah's efforts have helped the Bulls get within a half-game of Toronto for third place in the Eastern Conference. A win Monday would put Chicago percentage points behind the idle Raptors.

The Bulls, winners in 13 of 17, will face a Thunder team that's second in the West, but has lost four of six on the road and is on the verge of matching its three-game skid there Jan. 7-14. They also had a two-game overall win streak snapped with a 109-86 drubbing to Dallas on Sunday.

Oklahoma City (48-18) had one of its worst shooting performance this season in that defeat (36.7 percent) and also wasn't helped by Russell Westbrook's absence. The point guard was sitting out to rest his surgically repaired knee but is expected to return Monday.

The Thunder have also played this month with two other starters missing, former Bulls guard Thabo Sefolosha (calf) and center Kendrick Perkins (groin).

"There is no excuse," Durant said. "We've got to figure it out. We've each got to do it. We're pros. ... We've got to act like we care. It will be all right. We've got another (game) tomorrow."

Westbrook, averaging 27.3 points in his last four games, had 20 points and 10 assists in a 107-95 home win over Chicago on Dec. 19. Durant scored a game-best 32 in that victory and had 30 in Sunday's loss, his 31st consecutive game with 25 points or more.

That streak is the longest since Bulls legend Michael Jordan had a 40-game run in 1986-87. Durant has scored 25 or more points in three of his last four games in Chicago and just missed in the most recent visit on Nov. 8, 2012, with 24 points.

"This homestand doesn't get any easier," Gibson said. "We've just got to be prepared with whatever comes our way."

Noah had a team-high 23 points and 12 rebounds in Chicago's fourth consecutive loss to Oklahoma City in December. The Bulls have dropped three of the last four home meetings.

Chicago has shot a combined 35.2 percent in its last four matchups while the Thunder have shot 48.7 percent. They made 51.2 percent of their shots in the win in December, and the Bulls converted at just a 37.7 percent clip.
