Washington Wizards at Chicago Bulls

When: 8:30 p.m.

Where: United Center

TV/radio: CSN, ESPN 980

Probable starters: Wizards - F Dominic McGuire, F Antawn Jamison, C Andray Blatche, G Caron Butler, G Mike James. Bulls - F Thabo Sefolosha, F Tyrus Thomas, C Aaron Gray, G Ben Gordon, G Derrick Rose.

Injuries: Wizards - Out: C Brendan Haywood (wrist), G DeShawn Stevenson (back), G Gilbert Arenas (knee). Bulls - Day-to-day: F Drew Gooden (ankle), F Luol Deng (ankle), G Kirk Hinrich (thumb).

Outlook: It’s the second meeting of the season after a 117-110 Bulls win Dec. 6 in Chicago. A rash of injuries has slowed the Bulls this season, but they could be getting healthy. Gooden returned from an eight-game layoff in a victory over the Kings on Tuesday, and Deng could return for the game against the Wizards. Before beating Sacramento, the Bulls (15-20) had lost six of their past seven games. Chicago is the second of eight straight teams with losing records that the Wizards will face in the next two weeks.
