CHICAGO (AP) — Bulls forward Carlos Boozer is sitting out his second straight game with a sore right knee.

Boozer had started each of Chicago's first 31 games before getting injured against Boston last week. He is averaging 14.7 points and 8.6 rebounds.

With Luol Deng getting traded to Cleveland, the Bulls had only nine players available for Tuesday night's game against Phoenix.

The Suns were without Eric Bledsoe, who missed his third straight game because of a sprained right knee and did not make the trip.
