Bulls G Rose wants to play vs. Celtics
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose believes he’ll be playing in Friday’s tilt against the host Boston Celtics, ESPN’s Ric Bucher reported.
Rose has been listed as day-to-day with a toe injury by the Bulls, who own an Eastern Conference-best 10-2 record.
The league’s reigning MVP participated in shootaround on Friday morning, but coach Tom Thibodeau wasn’t ready to make an official call and labeled him a game-time decision.
Guards Richard Hamilton (groin) and C.J. Watson (elbow) are likely to miss the contest.
Rose is averaging 20.7 points and 8.6 assists this season.
