The Pacers and Bulls meet for the second time in the preseason, this time at the United Center in Chicago. Joakim Noah missed that first meeting on October 5th and he is a late scratch for the game tonight, as well with a strained groin.

The Bulls may also be without Jimmy Butler who missed the team's last game with a knee contusion but is expected to play tonight.

As for the Pacers, all players should be available which doesn't necessarily mean they will play. We shall see at tip time, with Danny Granger working through a calf strain and Paul George shaking off an illness as the most likely players to be limited.

The Bulls haven't lost in preseason since leaving the Fieldhouse while the Pacers have yet to win nor look good even when coming close to winning.
