Kornet is out with turf toe still I believe. WCJ is more likely of the two to play.

This game would and should be a sellout-

it's ZION!

but it's also Yom Kippur, holiest day of the year on Jewish calendar and I think the attendance will show it.
I wonder is Scheyer will be in the house to hang with Zion?

Love the Otto Richie pic

Lonzo's new jumper looked interesting the other day.
Glad to see BI on the court and healthy.

Should be a fun one!

Only hope is that they avoid a complete embarrassment since this'll be one of their few times this season getting national exposure with Zion running wild on them.

Pels fan here.

We've heard that Lonzo, Jrue, and Ingram won't play in this one. We just played a game on Monday and have a home preseason game on Friday so they are holding some vets out.

Expect to see a lot of rookies, 2nd teamers and Scrubs for us.

And of course, Zion. Keep an eye out for Nickeil Alexander-Walker. He is really fun to watch.

Don't worry, despite that, you's will still be the heavy favorites.

I'm going to start calling Lauri "Dolph." The Felicio picture was sadly accurate.

Felicio better come off the bench. He is awful.

I’d start Sato too.

If the Pels are sitting most of their starters Bulls better win big.

Given that it appears that the pels may be resting most of their starters, I'd expect a fairly comfortable win.
Based on how the Bulls played against the Bucks second and third stringers - I no longer have that expectation.

Primarily I'm looking for better defense (which was pretty poor against the Bucks) and somewhat better offensive movement. Sadly - I'm still expecting a loss here. Show improvement. Guys are still getting used to one another and such...

We'll see.

Pels HC Gentry said just now that no one is being held out, but to expect very limited minutes for some vets. So those guys will play but likely not very much.

Looking forward to watching tonight. Good luck guys.

Doesn't look like WCJR will play, he was getting some shots up yesterday that was about it though. Latest reports have him still not practicing. Kornet was a partial participant in practice but you'd have to think he won't play. Turf toe needs to be carefully managed especially in preseason no reason to push it.

This one might be a complete snoozefest by the 2nd quarter.

Win or lose is irrelevant I don’t care just play hard and work on knowing your teammates. The ball moves around a lot smoother for us but it’s no point when guys can’t get to their spot where they’re an actual threat. For instance we need to hit Dunn on more cuts instead of swinging to him on the perimeter where he’s useless and dies nothing to open up a shot for others.

Also Lauri probably is on cruise but I’d like to see him pick it up more and be more aggressive grabbing the board and pushing because that throws the other team off. They don’t expect our 7 footer can run pretty fast and dribble and Lauri makes good decisions with his passes. So take advantage.

Well... I guess the upside of WCJ being injured so early and Felicio getting any minutes at all is... MORE DANIEL GAFFORD!

LOL. Teams are not taking the Bulls seriously even in preseason. There's nothing better than "resting" your "veterans" after a 6 month offseason and one game. :lol:
