Derrick Rose said his ankle injury was "minor" after Friday's game against the Cavs.
|Compare to same point last season|
In what was a WILDLY entertaining contest, the Bulls ultimately fell to the Cavs in their 2014-15 home opener on Friday night. Things started off innocently enough, with LeBron and Derrick Rose both looking better than they had in their debuts. Going into halftime, it was a close, if sloppy game, despite Rose rolling his ankle on a putback late in the second quarter. When he came out of the break, he looked significantly diminished, not once really probing into the lane and settling for jumpers. Despite hitting a couple, he left soon after and never returned to the game, totaling 20 points on 8-16 shooting in a little over 25 minutes of action, a game both encouraging for its effectiveness and discouraging yet again for his not being able to stay out on the court. On the plus side, however, it really did just seem like a fairly routine ankle sprain, and while I'd doubt he'll play tomorrow or even most of next week, the Bulls schedule is pretty weak for most of November and it's probably just precautionary. Coming back too quickly from small injuries like this is what ended up costing Rose much of the 2012 season, even before the ACL injury
Rose (ankle) underwent X-rays after Friday's game against the Cavaliers, with the results coming back negative, ESPN Chicago reports. He'll travel with the team to Minnesota with the hope of playing Saturday against the Timberwolves. [...]
The returning Derrick Rose had plenty of time to take in the atmosphere at the Garden Wednesday night as he sat on the bench for the entire fourth quarter of Chicagos 104-80 blowout win over the Knicks, and to him, the silence throughout the building spoke volumes.
