Matchup to Watch
Pau Gasol vs. Cody Zeller: Gasol easily could have been named an All-Star reserve, based on his performance this season. The Bulls need him even more after they lost Joakim Noah for the season.
▪ This is the last of a four-game homestand for the Hornets. They finish February with six consecutive road games, broken up by All-Star break.
▪ Bulls All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler injured his left knee in a game in Denver.
▪ The Hornets are as healthy as they’ve been in a while, missing only center Al Jefferson (torn meniscus). He has begun workouts in Charlotte.
▪ The Bulls were considered a challenger to the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Eastern Conference championship, but had slipped to sixth in the standings over the weekend.
