CHICAGO (CBS) — Derrick Rose is expected to be a game-time decision Tuesday in the Bulls’ rematch against the New York Knicks.
Rose tweaked his ankle during the game in New York Sunday. The Chicago Tribune reports the extent of his injury is not clear, but he was seen in a walking boot on Monday.
Rose has already been sidelined 22 times this season because of a variety of injuries. Before Sunday, he had missed 12 straight games with a strained right groin.
The Bulls lost to the Knicks on Sunday 108-99. Rose shot only 8 of 26 from the field and missed a pair of free throws with 19 seconds left in regulation and the Bulls ahead by three.
