CHARLOTTE -- The NBA announced Wednesday that the Chicago Bulls will open up their postseason run at 6 p.m. CT Sunday at the United Center, regardless of their opponent.

The Bulls come into Wednesday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats in the fourth position in the Eastern Conference. Depending on how games play out tonight, the Bulls could play either the Brooklyn Nets or Washington Wizards.

If the Bulls lose to Charlotte tonight they will finish as the fourth seed. They would also claim the fourth seed if the Toronto Raptors beat the New York Knicks, regardless of the Bulls outcome tonight. The Bulls get the third seed if they beat the Bobcats and the Raptors lose.
