Derrick Rose, John Lucas III will not play

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Derrick Rose sat out his third straight game and fourth in five with a sprained big left toe. The Bulls are 3-1 without Rose this season.

"All the swelling is gone," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "When he says he can go he'll go."

John Lucas III suffered a strained groin in Friday night's win and was also ruled out of Saturday night's game. Lucas said his groin was sore but he expects to be available when the Bulls host New Jersey on Monday night. Veteran point guard Mike James, who was signed after Watson and Rose were injured, backed up Watson on Saturday.

"He'll be fine," Thibodeau said of James. "He'll do well. He's experienced, a very good pick-and-roll player, a fierce competitor. He's been around. He'll be fine."
