Bulls G Rose ruled out vs. Grizzlies
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose has been ruled out of Monday’s afternoon game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The reigning NBA MVP has been dealing with a toe injury over the past week. He initially suffered the injury during Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
“It still hurts a little bit, but I still have to go out there and play,” Rose told the Chicago Tribune. “Almost every game, I jam it. By the way that I play and push off, it hurts. I’m very surprised. And I’m kind of irritated. I want it to go away. But it always finds its way back.”
Rose is averaging 20.8 points and 8.7 assists per game this season.
