7 p.m., NBC Sports Chicago
Kris Dunn (migraine) and Otto Porter Jr. (leg strain) both participated in shootaround and are listed as probable for tonight. Chandler Hutchison is progressing in his recovery from a fractured right toe. Chicago Tribune writer K.C. Johnson reports that he was doing sprints today on the Grizzlies court.
Bulls two-way player Brandon Sampson also participated in shootaround this morning.
The Grizzlies injury report is somewhat extensive so let’s just condense it into a tweet.

We get to see Joakim Noah play, so it’s a good night. Also, there are few pictures that capture his essence better than this one...

There’d probably need to be another Bobby Portis/ Nikola Mirotic fight for me not to make Joakim Noah the lead when the Bulls play Memphis so apologies up front.
For those who thought the Bulls would go undefeated after the All-Star break after the big win against the Celtics on Saturday night, a 117-106 loss to a Giannis-less Milwaukee Bucks team Monday night quickly put a wrench in those plans.
The Bulls now broken three game winning streak started before the break against the Memphis Grizzlies. Will they start another winning streak with a win against the Grizzles tonight?
