How nice would it have been if Derrick Rose decided to return tonight, after his season ending ACL injury from last year? The Bulls, at full strength, would more than serve as a threat to end this winning streak but are currently short handed.
Joakim Noah, who arguably was the front runner for defensive player of the year before his injury, is also listed as a game time call and for the Bulls to have a remote chance against the Heat, he must play.
Despite both teams, seemingly hobbled with injuries, I'd expect a grind out type game, coming down to the wire. I'd also be surprised if Noah and Wade didn't play, given their competitive spirit and public recognition of this rival.
