Gameday Open Thread: Blazers vs. Bulls

Wow. After one of the most memorable days in Portland Trail Blazer history, are you ready for some basketball? Tonight, the new-look Blazers head to Chicago to play the Bulls (5:10 tip-off!). I don't know about you, but I'm still drained from yesterday. At the same time, I can't help but anticipate this game. Will the short-handed Blazers be re-energized? How will new coach Kaleb Canales run the team? Can they pull off a major upset? And do we want them to?

Starting lineup: Raymond Felton, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and Joel Przybilla are starting tonight, according to the Oregonian's Joe Freeman (via Twitter).

Injury Report: Elliot Williams is out with a dislocated left shoulder for a while. New Blazers Mehmet Okur and Shawne Williams are out for the year with various injuries, while Hasheem Thabeet and Jonny Flynn are not expected to play until Tuesday. Bulls star Derrick Rose is not playing.

The usual rules apply:

1. No swearing | 2. No pictures | 3. Be Nice!
4. Don't discuss unofficial game streaming, even when the game is on ESPN.

And, of course, have fun. Go Blazers! -- Tim
