It’s been five full days since the Bulls last played, Christmas has came and went, and the Bulls are back home in Chicago for this one. Their opponent is terrible, on a back-to-back, and missing their best player. That’s typically a trap, but likely not tonight.

NBC Sports Chicago, 7:00 p.m.

Injury Report:

Lauri Markkanen is listed as questionable with an illness. Per Shams Charania, Otto Porter Jr. is expected to return after the All-Star Break.

It wouldn’t be a Bulls game without the opponent’s star sitting out. Trae Young is out with a right ankle sprain. Here is the rest of the Hawks lengthy injury report.

The Bulls have already beaten the Hawks twice this season and with Young out this needs to be a win tonight.
