James Harden earned Western Conference Player of the Week honors for games played Monday, Feb. 24, through Sunday, March 2.
The Beard averaged 27.0 points, 7.7 assists, and 2.0 steals in three games last week highlighted by a 43-point performance to start off the week against Orlando and capped with his seventh double-double of the season against the Pistons. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
