Fourth preseason game, and the Bulls head coach is still sitting on the starting lineup for tonight's game like it's national security.

"We'll see,'' Thibodeau said at the Tuesday afternoon shoot-around. "Still toying around with some things. We've got some guys that are nicked up a little bit, but we'll see. I want to get a look at some different guys tonight, too.''

Both Rip Hamilton and Luol Deng, who missed Saturday's game in Minnesota, are back, but back-up center Kyrylo Fesenko is still sick and missed a second consecutive day of practice with the team.

Deng will be on full display against the Bucks, with Thibodeau now looking to get him into the mix with the second unit. Deng has been used as the anchor for that unit the past two seasons, playing the two, three and four spots in the past.

We're still looking at different combinations and we'll see how it unfolds,'' Thibodeau added. "I want to get a look at Luol with the second unit. A big part of our second unit is Luol, and when that group has Luol in it they'll function better.''
