The Chicago Bulls could get forward Derrick Jones Jr. back in the mix tonight. The team listed him as available for Saturday night’s contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jones Jr. last suited up on Jan. 12 against the Brooklyn Nets. He suffered a bone bruise in his right knee early in that contest, which has caused him to miss the Bulls’ last 17 games.

On the season, Derrick Jones Jr. is averaging 6.3 PPG, 3.4 RPG, and 0.7 BPG on 58.2% shooting from the field and 40.5% from three-point range. Getting him back on the court would be a welcome development, as Chicago could be without Zach LaVine and Javonte Green.

Tip-off for Bulls vs. Thunder is at 7 PM CST from the United Center. The game will air on NBC Sports Chicago.
