This will mark the third straight game that Rose has been out of the Bulls’ lineup with a hamstring injury.
Chicago (19-12) has continued to have success in the 27-year-old’s absence, edging the Indiana Pacers Wednesday, and routing the New York Knicks on Friday to finish a three-game homestand with a perfect record.
Toronto (21-13) was in Chicago on Dec. 28 for the first of the Bulls' three games at home, falling 104-97.
