KC with the update from shootaround earlier today:

Joakim Noah will miss his second straight game with a minor knee contusion.

"He still has a little bit of stiffness in that knee. It's nothing serious," Hoiberg said. "He went through shootaround but we're going to take a cautious approach with him and make sure that knee is 100 percent before we throw him back out there."

That could be Wednesday versus the Pistons at home. If not then, both Noah and Taj Gibson, who has yet to play this preseason, are likely to play next Monday in Charlotte against the Hornets.

There was also an update on Derrick Rose, who'll be in the building but watching from the locker room. He was originally supposed to resume basketball activities this week but that's looking less than certain now.

starters for tonight:

PG: Hinrich
SG: Butler
SF: Snell
PF: Mirotic
C: Gasol
