Bulls Visit Raptors: Noah, Korver Out For Tonight's Game

The Chicago Bulls continue their preseason schedule by visiting the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Wednesday.

According to Chicago Breaking Sports, the Bulls will be playing without key contributors Joakim Noah and Kyle Korver:

The revolving door that is the Bulls' starting lineup continued to spin Wednesday with Joakim Noah sitting for the Raptors' game with flu-like symptoms and Kyle Korver out with a cyst in his left ankle.

Korver, in fact, may have to have surgery; SB Nation Chicago reported on this in The Deep Dish this morning:

CSN Chicago is reporting that Korver, considered day-to-day by head coach Tom Thibodeau, received a cortisone shot to quell the pain of a persistent cyst on his left ankle. And the ultimate kicker: If the shot doesn't enable Kyle to recover from the problem, he could need surgery. Although Korver isn't projected to be a starter at shooting guard, he still provides essential depth at the guard and small forward positions. His loss would hurt.

Tonight's game will be televised on CSN Chicago Plus at 6 p.m. CDT.
