C.J. Watson and Richard Hamilton won't be active for Chicago tonight as the Bulls try to follow up a last-second victory in Milwaukee with another win over the Magic. Although both players are listed as day-to-day, neither seemed on the verge of returning — Watson wore a walking boot on his sprained left ankle yesterday, while Hamilton said he was "just trying to lift [his] arm."
Even with the health of a pair of Bulls guards up in the air though, coach Tom Thibodeau doesn't feel like the team needs to add reinforcements before the trade deadline.
"If we don't do anything, we feel very good about the people we have," Thibodeau told K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. "We feel depth is one of our strengths, and we have more than enough to win with."
The Bulls are still exploring possible trades, as Thibodeau acknowledged to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, but that's more about due diligence than a pressing desire to get anything done.
"We talk every day," Thibodeau said, referring to the Bulls' brass. "Their job is to study the league, field calls; and often times if you have a good team, you have good players, people want them, they call. That doesn't mean we're going to do anything. We listen. And if we think it could make the team better we'll consider it, if not we're more than happy with the roster that we have. We feel very good about that."
