Warriors vs. Bulls Injuries: DeMar DeRozan and Stephen Curry ready?

The Chicago Bulls host the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors on a Sunday afternoon, hoping to turn around a disappointing season.

Injury Reports Warriors – Bulls: DeMar DeRozan QUESTIONABLE, Stephen Curry ACTIVE

Warriors - Bulls

Chicago Bulls were a top team in the NBA a year ago, but they’ve had a terrible season so far. They’re playing without Lonzo Ball this season, but he missed significant time last season, too. The Bulls are currently 19-24 and 11th in the Eastern Conference after dropping three straight games.

The status of Demar DeRozan (quad) for Sunday’s game against the Warriors is uncertain at this time.

DeRozan has missed the last two games while recovering from a quad strain, and his availability for Sunday’s game is currently unknown. If he were to miss another game, Alex Caruso would almost certainly start in his place.

It’s true that the Golden State Warriors haven’t exactly set the world on fire so far this season, but they’ve also spent a significant portion of the year without their Steph Curry.

Warrors star Curry returned to the lineup and immediately made an impact. The Warriors beat the Spurs 144-113 on Friday night to end their three-game losing streak.

During his 23 minutes on the court, Stephen Curry scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), grabbed four boards, dished out three assists, and blocked a single shot.

With a 31-point victory over the Spurs, the Warriors were able to give Curry more rest time than usual. He’s been out for a while due to a shoulder injury, so this is welcome news.

Their new record is 21 wins and 21 losses. They are currently in a sixth-place tie in the Western Conference, eight games back of the first-place Nuggets.

You can count on the star floor general to handle his typical workload when the Warriors play the Bulls on the road on Sunday.
