Bulls Schedule 2012: Chicago Hosts Atlanta And Milwaukee Prior To All-Star Break

The Chicago Bulls head into the week coming off a surprising 12-point home loss to the cellar-dwelling New Jersey Nets, but the good news is that they could have point guard Derrick Rose back in the lineup as soon as Monday afternoon's game against Atlanta. That certainly would help the team go a long way toward bouncing back.

The Bulls' full 2012 schedule can be viewed here, and this is the week ahead:

Monday, Feb. 20: vs. Atlanta Hawks (3:00 p.m. CT, CSN and ESPN)
The Hawks are in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, and they're 1-1 against the Bulls this season. Joe Johnson leads the team in scoring with 17.7 points per game, while Josh Smith paces the Hawks with 9.5 rebounds per game.
