Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau updated the team's injury situation ahead of Thursday night's game against the Orlando Magic and indicated the Bulls would be without C.J. Watson and Richard Hamilton. Watson is apparently much closer to a return to the floor than Hamilton:
Hamilton and Watson out tonight. C.J. getting closer, Rip a ways away, reports Thibodeau. #ORLvsCHI— Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) March 8, 2012

After injuring a shoulder against Indiana on Monday, Hamilton skipped Chicago's game on Wednesday. He'd only been back a few games from an injury that had kept him out of action for the majority of February.
Watson has had his share of injury troubles as well this season, and this is the third straight game he'll miss.
