Collins leads Utah with 17 points and nine rebounds in 22 minutes. Rookie Brice Sensabaugh is one rebound shy of a double-double after scoring a career-high 13 points in the first half.

The Jazz trail Chicago 77-68 with less than 6:20 to play in the third quarter. Coby White has hit 7-of-11 threes to lead all scorers with 22 points.

Jazz Playing Shorthanded Against Bulls

Lauri Markkanen (quad), Walker Kessler (foot), Taylor Hendricks (toe), and Keyonte George (illness) have all been ruled out against Chicago. The quartet represents four of the Jazz’s top-seven rotation players since the trade deadline. They have combined to average more than half of the 240 roster minutes over the last 10 games, leaving coach Will Hardy reaching deep into his bench to build his rotation.

Little-used Luka Samanic played 23 minutes on Monday, earning his first start of the season. Two-way wing Johnny Juzang played 20 minutes in the victory, including all 12 minutes of the fourth quarter.

Chicago stunned the Sacramento Kings on Monday overcoming a 21-point second-half deficit to open their road trip with a victory.

After facing the Jazz the Bulls will travel to Golden State to face the Warriors before wrapping up their road trip against the Los Angeles Clippers.
