Chicago Bulls Team news:
Otto Porter Jr. left the court in the first quarter against Atlanta Hawks after suffering a foot injury during the first quarter. He never returned and Hawks have ruled him out of the match against Rockets. No other injury concerns for the hosts.
Chandler Hutchison was given 19 minutes in the last game and should be involved here as well. Wendell Carter (thumb) was listed as probable for Wednesday’s game against the Hawks but was in the line-up so we expect him to be fit for the match.
Houston Rockets team news:
Gerald Green won’t be returning this season due to a severe knee. The 33-year-old Rockets’ fan-favorite suffered the injury during the 2019 pre-season. Nene Hilario is also out of this game as he continues to recover from a groin injury.
Eric Gordon missed the clash against Warriors due to a muscle injury and remains doubtful for this match as well.
