Bulls short-handed because of injuries

In the unlikely event that all five of the Bulls' injured players are unable to play against the Nets, coach Tom Thibodeau will be left with only nine players.

If Joakim Noah, who is expected to play, ends up scratching, the Bulls will have only three post players including the scarcely-used Brian Scalabrine.

It could make for some interesting personnel groupings, which is why recently-signed veteran guard Mike James has prepared to play multiple positions. James primarily plays point guard.

"I'm really going to start focusing on learning the offense from not just the one position but also the two position," James said. "So wherever he calls me in whether I'm playing off the ball or on the ball, preparation is always key."
