Bulls PG Rose exits with back spasms
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose played only 11 minutes Monday night before leaving with back spasms.
The reigning NBA MVP did not return after halftime of the Bulls’ 109-87 rout over the New Jersey Nets.
Rose said his back was tight all game, but added that he doesn’t anticipate missing any time.
Rose is averaging 23.6 points and 8.2 assists this season for the league-leading Bulls.
