--F Luol Deng found early foul trouble against Portland and didn't score in the first half after playing just eight minutes. He rallied after halftime to finish with 15 points.

--G Derrick Rose tied his second-best scoring night of the season when he piled up 36 points in Monday's loss to Portland. Rose scored a season-high 39 points in the home opener against Detroit and also tallied 36 against Boston on Jan. 8.

--C Omer Asik stepped up when the Bulls needed help guarding Portland's LaMarcus Aldridge on Monday. Aldridge ended up with 42 points, but Asik had some brief success late in the third quarter. The rookie center produced 9 points and 5 rebounds in just 11 minutes of action.


--C Joakim Noah (torn ligament in right thumb) had surgery Dec. 16 and is expected to be out 8 to 10 weeks. He originally suffered the injury on Nov. 27 at Sacramento and played with it for more than two weeks before deciding to have it repaired. Coach Tom Thibodeau expects Noah to return after the All-Star break, which would set the date as a Feb. 23 game at Toronto.
