Bulls PG Rose misses matchup with Heat
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose missed Wednesday’s showdown against the Miami Heat due to a strained groin.
Rose has missed 11 games to injury this season. C.J. was expected to start in his place.
The reigning league MVP, Rose is averaging 22.9 points and eight assists in 34 games.
He was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Tuesday after he publicly lashed out at officials following the team’s 104-99 win over the New York Knicks.
