Derrick Rose will not play in Monday's contest against the Hornets due to body soreness, Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com reports.
Rose is not playing due to what has been described as soreness all over his body. It doesn't appear that this is anything serious and the Chicago Bulls are keeping him out to allow him some time to rest. He's likely to play in Wednesday's game against Atlanta. Kirk Hinrich will be starting in place of Rose for Monday's tilt.
Ben McLemore (wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.
As expected, McLemore will miss a second straight game as he continues to nurse a sprained right wrist. Expect Marco Belienlli to make another start at shooting guard and see increased minutes.
Jacob Markstrom will be in net for Tuesday's game at Colorado.
Markstrom has been playing well lately, earning wins in four of his past five starts. The 26-year-old Swede has compiled a 16-8-5 record on the season with a .923 save percentage and 2.38 GAA. He will face an Avalanche team Tuesday that has lost three games in a row and is currently tied for fourth place in the Central Division.
Corey Crawford will start between the pipes Tuesday against the Sharks, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Crawford continues to serve in a workhorse role for the Chicago Blackhawks , currently owning a phenomenal 31-12-2 record on the campaign. He'll look to inch closer to his career-best 33 wins Tuesday as he prepares to face a Sharks club averaging 3.04 goals per game on the road this season.
Gay was initially listed as doubtful, but after receiving treatment throughout the afternoon, he's going to give it a go after spraining his ankle Friday against the Nets and sitting out Sunday's loss to the Celtics. The veteran doesn't seem close to 100 percent, making him a risky daily play, as both his minutes and his effectiveness could be limited, especially against a formidable opponent in the Cavaliers.
