The Chicago Bulls have ruled out Zach LaVine (ankle), Patrick Williams (foot), and Julian Phillips (foot) for this game, while Andre Drummond (ankle) and Ayo Dosunmu (quad) have been listed as probable.

DeMar DeRozan closed out the regular season with four straight 30-point games, and he pushed his season average to 24.0 points per game along the way. Chicago is likely going to lean on him to carry the attack, given his experience in playoff situations throughout his career.
