He missed 11 games this season with a broken left index finger.

The absence of Irving meant both star point guards were out of action at the United Center on Tuesday night. Derrick Rose of the Bulls is recovering from major knee surgery and has never faced Irving in an NBA game.

"Well, I think we're all looking forward to that," Scott said of a Rose-Irving duel. "My greatest hope is that No. 1 that Derrick Rose comes back and he's back to being the old Derrick Rose. If that happens and they get a chance to go against each other, I think that would be very interesting. So I think we're all looking forward to that."
