Since Rajon Rondo sprained his wrist, the Bulls have gone 1-2 – losing to the Knicks (in the game Rondo got hurt), beating the 76ers and losing to the Nets.

So, don’t assume tonight’s game against the lowly Magic will be easy for Chicago, which is tied for eighth in the Eastern Conference with the Heat.

Vincent Goodwill of CSN Chicago:

Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams will likely see minutes at point guard, and Jimmy Butler can handle lead-guard duties. Dwyane Wade, back from injury, can also pitch in.

But Rondo had been thriving lately.

The Bulls are avoiding the complication of Rondo and Wade trying to mesh, but Chicago also loses its top point guard. That tradeoff didn’t go well enough against Brooklyn, but at least Orlando is another low bar to clear.
