Derrick Rose's season-ending knee injury last week knocked the Bulls down—but maybe not out. Rose missed 27 games during the regular season, during which Chicago went 18--9. The Bulls have capable backups in C.J. Watson and John Lucas III and an offense that ranked fifth in the NBA in efficiency, up from 11th last season. "And they are still a great defensive team," says a scout. "Offensively they execute really well. With Rose out they will run a lot of pin-downs for Kyle Korver, Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton (right). They will run some pick-and-rolls for the guards. They will post up Carlos Boozer. They won't be able to isolate and go like they could with Rose, but trust me, they won't fall apart."
