Ryan Anderson will miss his 2nd straight game due to a stomach illness, joining Quincy Pondexter and Jrue Holiday (game restriction of appearing in back-to-back games) on the sidelines.
Alexis Ajinca replaced Omer Asik after halftime in the matchup with the Wizards, but Asik is listed as the starter against the Bulls. Don't be surprised to see Gentry give Ajinca more minutes and another start in the 2nd half if Asik's play is underwhelming again.
After last night's performance, will Ish Smith have a much larger role? With Holiday out, he was going to see minutes regardless, but it'll be worth watching whether he surpasses the amount of time Norris Cole spends on the floor.
