DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer went through the morning shootaround and are expected to be in the Chicago Bulls' lineup for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Atlanta Hawks.

Rose twisted his left ankle at the end of Game 1. Boozer has been bothered by a turf toe injury on his right foot that surfaced in the opening round against Indiana, although he did have 14 points and eight rebounds in the series opener against the Hawks.

Coach Tom Thibodeau says that "everyone's fine today, full practice."

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Chicago. Atlanta won Game 1, 103-95.
