The Chicago Bulls have five players listed on their All-Star ballot this season, and Derrick Rose is not one of them. Rose is recovering from an ACL injury suffered in the first round of the 2012 playoffs versus the Philadelphia 76ers and may not return in time for the All Star game.
The Bulls listed Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich on the ballot.
Deng leads the Bulls in scoring at 18.9 per game while Noah leads the team in rebounds (9.4), steals (1.4) and blocks (2.3).
All Star voting began on Tuesday and ends on Jan. 14. The 2013 starters will be announced on Jan. 17 on TNT.
