Chicago Bulls: 3 Players Who Must Step Up in the NBA Playoffs
USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls are still awaiting the return of their young superstar and former MVP—Derrick Rose.

But as we saw during the 2011 and 2012 playoffs, the Bulls can't just rely on one player to carry them to a championship. It will take a total team effort to knock off the fellow elite Eastern Conference powerhouses like the Miami Heat or Indiana Pacers.

With that being said, the Bulls only have a few other players who could potentially make a big impact on their success in the playoffs, but they haven't been playing exceptionally well throughout most of the season.

This slideshow will evaluate three players on the Bulls roster who must step up in order for the Bulls to have a chance at a long playoff run, and ultimately an NBA title.
