Chicago Bulls' point guard and superstar Derrick Rose will miss the first few months of the regular season after suffering a torn ACL in the first game of the playoffs last season. In the 2010-2011 season, the last full season for Chicago, Derrick Rose was responsible for over 25 percent of the Bulls overall scoring by himself. His assists average also accounting for over 20 percent of the Bulls' overall scoring as well.

Last year in the playoffs after Rose went out, no player who played all six games averaged more than 14 points per game. The Bulls will need more production from their highest scorer if they want to stay competitive without Rose.
Here are five players who may be able to boost the scoring production.
