The Chicago Bulls may have a few more All-Stars after Thursday night when the NBA announces its full rosters for the 2011-12 All-Star game at 6 p.m. CST. The announcement, which will come live as part of a pre-game show on TNT, may include the naming of several Bulls to the roster.
In the All-Star voting results released in late January, five Bulls ranked in the top vote recipients, including PG Derrick Rose who is part of the All-Star starting lineup. The Bulls also have F Luol Deng, F Carlos Boozer, G Richard Hamilton and C Joakim Noah in the running for reserve roles for the All-Star game.
NBA analyst Tom Ziller recently nominated Luol Deng as a possible injury replacement in his analysis of the reserve roster spots. Deng, who has struggled with injuries himself, leads the team with 38 minutes player per game, and he has scored an impressive 16 points per game in 2011-12
