The ninth-seeded Bulls are facing off against the tenth-seeded Hawks in a 2024 NBA Play-In Tournament game on Wednesday.

While Trae Young is back in action after missing more than a month, Atlanta will be missing key players like forward Jalen Johnson (right ankle sprain) and center Onyeka Okongwu (left toe inflammation). Johnson, who was having a breakout season, got injured last Tuesday during the final week of the regular season.

Atlanta, on a six-game losing streak to end the season, will face a solid Bulls team that had a winning record in 2024. DeMar DeRozan and Coby White, candidates for various awards, lead Chicago, which is in the Play-In Tournament for the second consecutive season.

The winner of this game will advance to face the loser of the Heat-76ers matchup on Friday, with the 8th seed and a first-round game against the Boston Celtics at stake.
