Rose not at Bulls practice

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Point guard Derrick Rose was excused from Bulls practice on Wednesday because of a family emergency. Rose is expected to play Thursday night in Game 3 of the series with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the United Center.

"It was different without Derrick, no question," coach Vinny Del Negro said of practice. "We did our film work, we went over some things offensively and defensively, got a lot of shots up and worked on some things."

In other words, Rose didn't miss a lot. He'll be able to catch up Thursday when the Bulls conduct their walkthrough at 3 p.m. at the UC. Because of the early 6 p.m. start time for Game 3, they won't conduct their usual morning shootaround at the Berto Center.
