The Bulls are in an awkward spot after capturing the No. 1 overall playoff seed the past two years. They were widely viewed as the top threat in the Eastern Conference to LeBron James and the Miami Heat until Rose was hurt in the playoff-opening win over Philadelphia.

As if that weren't bad enough, the Bulls lost Joakim Noah to a sprained left ankle in Game 3 and bowed out in the first round.
