Chicago Sun-Times

Rose not expected to play tonight

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Derrick Rose entered the United Center before Wednesday night's game in a walking boot and is not expected to play against the Wizards tonight, the Sun-Times has confirmed.

Rose injured his toe in Tuesday night's win at Minnesota. He left the game, had his toe re-taped and returned to help the Bulls hold off the Timberwolves.

The Bulls have signed veteran point guard Mike James from the D-League, according to multiple reports. With C.J. Watson still recovering from an elbow injury, John Lucas III is the only true point guard on the roster. It's possible Miller could arrive in time to be in uniform tonight.

Rose said after Tuesday night's game that he has dealt with "turf toe" on and off during his career and did not want to sit out any games. Evidently, the injury did not respond to treatment overnight.
