Rose has been sidelined by a toe injury since Jan. 14. He's missed the team's last four games, though the Bulls went 3-1 over that span. Chicago will need to boost from Rose's return, as neither Taj Gibson nor Luol Deng are going to play. Joakim Noah and John Lucas III should be able to go if everything goes okay during warmups.
