Avery Bradley (ribs) likely will not play tonight. Leandro Barbosa would start in his place. C's-Bulls WEEI 6:30.— Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) January 18, 2013
Deng said he's playing.— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) January 18, 2013
Obviously, losing Avery in this key match up is huge, but let's hope his absence actually motivates the rest of the team to step up on defense. It'll also be interesting to see how Leandro Barbosa reacts after denying rumors of a trade request yesterday.
