Chicago Bulls fans may see numerous starting lineups for their team during the upcoming season.
The team's Alpha Dog Derrick Rose will be sidelined for nearly the entire year as he recovers from an ACL injury which he suffered during the postseason. To replace the one-time NBA MVP in the starting five, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau will have to go with either the defensive-minded Kirk Hinrich or the speedy Nate Robinson at the point.
With the possibility of other Bulls starters getting plagued by injuries, players like Jimmy Butler and Vladimir Radmanovic could somehow become starters for a few games or so.
Here are five possible starting lineups for Chicago in 2012-13.
