TORONTO — Luol Deng had 19 points, Joakim Noah scored 18 and the Chicago Bulls overcame the absence of Derrick Rose to beat the Toronto Raptors 96-80 on Friday night for their first road win of the season.

Deng and Noah also had nine rebounds apiece as Chicago earned its third consecutive win. Kirk Hinrich started in place of Rose and scored 12 points, helping the Bulls improve to 1-3 on the road.

Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP, was sidelined by the right hamstring injury that knocked him out in the fourth quarter of Monday's home win over Cleveland. He will be re-evaluated before the Bulls host undefeated Indiana on Saturday.
