The Chicago Bulls have found themselves on a hot streak, winning four games in a row for the second time this season.
They’ve even managed to win two straight post-trade deadline, where they gave up forwards Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott in exchange for Anthony Morrow, Joffrey Lauvergne, and Cameron Payne, who have seen limited playing time thus far.
Unfortunately, the Bulls will be shorthanded against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday when they will be going for their fifth straight win, as the team has announced that guard Michael Carter-Williams and forward Paul Zipser will both miss the game due to injury.
Carter-Williams, Zipser both out vs. Nuggets.

Carter-Williams, who was starting at point guard before his injury, missed Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers as well with patellar tendinitis. This will be the seventh game in a row that Zipser has missed with an ankle injury.
