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.
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.

*Bulls-Pacers Preview* ======================


Chicago (33-25) at Indiana (37-22), 8:00 p.m. EDT

With their highly ranked defense playing especially tough lately, the Indiana Pacers seek to extend their lead in the Central Division over the offensively challenged Chicago Bulls.

The Pacers will try for their seventh win in eight games overall and third in a row over the Bulls on Sunday night when they meet in Indiana.

Following back-to-back home losses, Indiana held just a one-half game lead over Chicago on Feb. 12 before stretching its advantage with six wins in its last seven games. Paul George had 22 points and 10 rebounds, while Roy Hibbert had 18 points in a 93-81 at Toronto on Saturday.

Even after the Bulls (34-25) picked up a half-game in the standings with a 96-85 win over Brooklyn on Saturday, Indiana (37-22) still has a chance to match its largest division lead at four games.

The Pacers have featured a stingy defense that ranks near the top of the NBA in points allowed (89.6), defensive field goal percentage (41.4) and 3-point percentage (31.6).

Indiana, however, has been even better in those areas lately, limiting opponents to 85.6 points per game and 38.0 percent shooting - 25.8 percent from 3-point range - in its last seven contests.

"We are in a tough playoff race so we understand that our defense is going to give us a chance," forward David West told the team's official website.

The low-scoring Bulls, meanwhile, hope they've put their offensive troubles behind them following Saturday's 96-85 win over Brooklyn. They averaged just 85.7 points on 41.5 percent shooting over a seven-game stretch before hitting 52.1 percent, their best shooting effort in almost two months, against the Nets.

Joakim Noah enters this contest on a tear after finishing with 21 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and four blocks in the win. The All-Star center also had 23 points, 21 rebounds and a career-high 11 blocks against Philadelphia on Thursday.

"It's been an up-and-down year," Noah said. "But I really feel like when we're playing our best, we can really beat a lot of people. So the potential is definitely there."

Noah missed a 111-101 loss at Indiana on Feb. 4 due to a foot injury as West, George and George Hill combined for 72 points. Nate Robinson, who had 19 in that contest, also scored 19 in an 80-76 home loss to the Pacers on Dec. 4.

Luol Deng continues to battle a mouth injury and had eight points on 3-of-10 shooting on Saturday. He's totaled just 22 while shooting 8 for 29 from the floor in his last two trips to Indiana.

George had 34 points and nine rebounds to lead the Pacers to their road victory in December before finishing with 21 and 11, respectively, in last month's home win.

West led the way with 29 points on 11-of-18 shooting as Indiana made 52.7 percent from the field in that contest.

The Pacers are averaging 109.5 points - 15.6 above their season average - in their last four home games. They'll try to continue that surge against a Chicago team that has held its opponents to 86.1 points per game in its last eight.
