Deng, Hamilton out for Bulls vs. Knicks tonight

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bulls will be without forward Luol Deng and guard Richard Hamilton for tonight's game against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, coach Tom Thibodeau said.

Hamilton has a thigh injury. Deng is recovering from a torn ligament in his left wrist.

''[Deng] just worked out at the hotel [today, so he's doing more and more each day],'' Thibodeau said. ''He's getting close.''

Thibodeau also acknowledged that Derrick Rose was indeed a little under the weather in Wednesday night's 98-82 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. But he's feeling significantly better tonight. Rose scored 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting with six assists, one rebound and four turnovers against the 76ers.

''The thing I respect about him is he gave us everything he had,'' Thibodeau said.
