Having lost 8 of their last 11 games, the Chicago Bulls are in desperate need of a few confident wins. Now that their six-game road trip has finally come to a conclusion, here’s to hoping some time spent back at home will help the Bulls crawl back to a .500 winning percentage. That journey starts here tonight, against the Washington Wizards.

Earlier this season, Chicago dropped a 100-102 nailbiter on the road to the Wizards, so it will be interesting to see if they can exact revenge here. Their odds look pretty good, as they’re favored by Vegas to win big tonight while several key pieces of Washington’s roster remain sidelined due to injury.

Here’s how to watch tonight’s action and everything you need to know before the Bulls take on the Wizards.

Projected Chicago Bulls Starting Lineup and Injury Report

  • PG: Alex Caruso
  • SG: Zach LaVine
  • SF: DeMar DeRozan
  • PF: Patrick Williams
  • C: Nikola Vucevic
  • IR: Out – Lonzo Ball; Doubtful – Javonte Green; Questionable – Alex Caruso

While I admire Billy Donovan’s decision to try shaking up the starting lineup to see what results it may yield, this move may have been too little too late. Alex Caruso and Javonte Green have usurped Ayo Dosunmu and Patrick Williams in the starting lineup for now, but injuries may end up holding the pair back from seizing their big opportunity.

Game Predictions

It’s becoming so difficult to continue predicting the Bulls to win these games, just to suffer yet another crushing defeat. They won’t ever get a better opportunity to capitalize than right now, however, as the Wizards are depleted by injury and won’t have Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura, or Delon Wright available to play tonight. Additionally, home-court advantage should play in Chicago’s favor tonight as the Wizards have posted a great record of 8-5 at home but have been absolutely awful with a 3-9 record on the road. No game is truly a must-win this early in the season, but this game sure feels like one, doesn’t it?

My Predictions: (8-15)
