The Bulls will have to defend their league-best record without help from two of the key contributors, starting SG Richard Hamilton and reserve G C.J. Watson. According to CSN Chicago, both players will miss Wednesday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks:

Richard "Rip" Hamilton has only played in 16 games in the 2011-12 NBA Season, struggling with various leg and shoulder injuries, while C.J. Watson has played in 27 games this season and is currently struggling with an ankle sprain.
