Bulls rule out Deng, Watson, Hamilton vs. NY
The Chicago Bulls will be shorthanded when they host the New York Knicks on Monday.
Forward Luol Deng and guards C.J. Watson and Richard Hamilton have been ruled out for the contest.
Deng is dealing with a torn ligament in his left wrist, Watson has a left ankle sprain and Hamilton is nursing a sore right shoulder.
On the positive side, center Joakim Noah is slated to return after sitting out Saturday’s win over the Utah Jazz. He said he wasn’t feeling well for that contest.
The 6-foot-11 Noah is averaging 9.9 points and 10.4 rebounds. He has four straight double-digit rebounding games, pulling down 55 in that stretch.
