LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers is not likely to be among those facing the Chicago Bulls, after the Cleveland Cavaliers forward missed shootaround with illness.
Richard Jefferson will be playing in his stead, as he practiced with the starters instead.
Without James, the Cavaliers have been 4-18 since he joined the franchise in 2014.
Tyronn Lue planned to rest his star players in March, but was keen on finishing February strong. As he is looking to keep their four-game lead at the top of the conference safe.
