The New Jersey Nets will be without guard Jordan Farmar (knee) and forward Troy Murphy (flu) when they face the Bulls this afternoon at the United Center.
The Bulls, other than Joakim Noah (thumb surgery), are completely healthy.
Farmar is one of the players New Jersey coach Avery Johnson would have used to defend Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, so the Nets will have to improvise there.
"Rose creates all kind of havoc for your defense," Johnson said. "You can game plan him all you want, but he finds a way to beat your defense. We have to do a good job today of trying to make him play some defense so he won't be able to save himself for offense."
