Off to a 5-5 start the year, the Chicago Bulls will have their work cut out for themselves as they embark on a brutal six-game stretch of games that starts here with a back-to-back against the Toronto Raptors. As a top-seeded team in the East in last year’s playoffs, Toronto has a reputation to uphold here and is looking to prove they belong in the conversation of true title contenders.

So far, the Raptors have not gotten off to much a better start than the Bulls. Possessing a 5-4 record entering this pair of games against Chicago, it’s entirely possible they head back to Toronto with a negative record.

I doubt that will be an easy task to achieve, however, as they’ve already claimed wins against the Cavaliers, 76ers, and Spurs, each of whom has already beaten the Bulls in their own right. Chicago will need to bring their best effort here if they want to get back to a positive winning percentage.

Projected Chicago Bulls Starting Lineup and Injury Report

  • PG: Ayo Dosunmu
  • SG: Zach LaVine
  • SF: DeMar DeRozan
  • PF: Patrick Williams
  • C: Nikola Vucevic
  • IR: Out – Lonzo Ball, Andre Drummond, Coby White; Questionable – Zach LaVine

The Bulls will once again be without Drummond or Coby on the court tonight, but the real question surrounds the status of LaVine. While expected to sit several back-to-backs this year, Zach surprised us in their last set against Brooklyn and Charlotte by playing in both games. We’ll have to wait until closer to tipoff to see what his strategy for this weekend may be.

Game Predictions

If one thing’s for sure, it’s that DeMar DeRozan is always going to be the best version of himself when he gets the chance to play his former team. This much is especially true when he gets to do it in front of the home team crowd in Toronto. Last year, DeRozan led the Bulls to a 3-1 record against the Raptors, posting an average of 27.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.3 assists on 52.2% shooting from the field. With Pascal Siakam sidelined due to a groin injury, DeMar and the Bulls should overcome Toronto with their plentiful offensive options.
