Rose sore, but hopes to play in Toronto

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Derrick Rose didn't practice Tuesday and was wearing a brace on his right wrist, but the point guard said he expects to play Wednesday when the Bulls face the Toronto Raptors on the road.

"If it's up to me, I'm playing," he said. "Knowing that it's only sore, usually I can play through soreness."

Although the wrist was the biggest concern after he crashed to the floor late in the Bulls' 92-73 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday, Rose said that wasn't the body part giving him the most pain.

"My hip is really messed up," he said. "I've been just getting treatment, I'll get treatment on the plane and I'll get treatment in Toronto. Hopefully, for the game I should be alright.

"The wrist really isn't that bad. If anything, my elbow hurts more than my wrist. Right now, I'm a little beat up, but I should be able to play through it."
