Bulls vs. New Orleans Hornets at New Orleans Arena, 7 p.m.
TV: Comcast SportsNet
Radio: WMVP 1000-AM
Update: After starting the season 2-0, the Hornets have gone 2-21 and are in bad shape physically. SG Eric Gordon, the key player acquired from the Clippers for Chris Paul, has played in just two games because of a knee injury. The team's top scorer, PG Jarrett Jack, has missed three games with a sore knee, while PF Carl Landry is out after suffering an MCL sprain last Saturday. Former Clippers center Chris Kaman is back with the team after trade attempts went nowhere. The Bulls have won six in a row in the series.
Next: Charlotte Bobcats at TimeWarner Cable Arena, 6 p.m. Friday
