Default Rose without Deng

Rose has been averaging almost 30ppg on 49% shooting in the last 10 games. I think this proves how much Deng is worth to this team. Without Deng, Rose is shooting about 8 more shots a game than before, pretty much making him the only offensive player on the Bulls.

The Bulls definitely need a player who can step up on offense when Deng or Rose is injured. Who could that player be?

Easy, it was Rip. Remember when Rose was out, then that game where Rip was in and he became a decent distributor getting like 7 assist for like 3 games. And when he had that monster 20+ point game. His main problem has been injuries, but thats entirely to blame on this condensed schedule. And it was makes it worst that each time he keeps coming in early.

This time, he needs to sit out, and get the rest he needs. Until then, Brewer needs to get back in his groove, and become the offensive power we saw at the beginning of the season.

Pretty sure. Its not like he's injury prone or anything. The first injury he got was a pretty nasty hit to the waist thigh area. The problem is that because he's never gotten the appropriate amount of healing time, that SAME injury has never been able to fully heal and he keeps re-hurting the same injury.

Rip is 85%-95% and can play every game. But his condition is unique, because he can aggravate his groin to the point where he will require long periods of recovery.

I like having these periods in a season, not because of the injury, because I want to see who steps up. We're seeing Butler improve, Korver is playing a much more complete game, Noah is forced to carry more weight, and he's stepping up. When everyone is back, our BenchMob will be all the better.
