* O'Neal, Dooling sit out: Both starting center Jermaine O'Neal and backup guard Keyon Dooling did not participate in Thursday's 90-minute practice session due to knee ailments. Rivers said it was more of a rest day for O'Neal (who appeared to be hobbled by a bothersome hamstring or knee in Wednesday's game), but deemed Dooling questionable for Friday's visit from the Bulls. "They're all questionable," Rivers quipped of his veteran team. "But, yes, I think Dooling is [questionable]. I think J.O. will go."
Just what this team needs… another injury.
Did anyone notice Dooling limping at any point during the Mavericks game?
The Bulls all-world PG Derrick Rose missed Wednesday night's game because of turf toe. He's questionable for Friday night. The Bulls signed veteran Mike James from the D League.
