Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose Unlikely To Play Tonight Against Sixers

Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls sit atop the Eastern Conference at 4-1, the lone loss coming in overtime to a desperate Cleveland Cavaliers team. They rank seventh in defense and ninth in offense.

Though that seems a foregone conclusion given his play for Team USA this summer and with the Chicago Bulls during the exhibition slate, the same seemed inevitable last season. And while Rose played eight of the first nine games in 2013-2014, he succumbed to another knee injury before November was over. Baby steps are prudent. But the former MVP is feeling good enough to think far bigger. He’s not worried about playing a full game; he’s concerned and even confident with the way he’ll finish them. Read More »
