Video: Nate Robinson Throws Up During Bulls Game

(CBS) Nate Robinson didn’t really have a choice on Thursday night – he had to play.

Even though he was battling the flu, with Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich out, the Bulls were beyond thin at guard.

Robinson stepped up and played 42 minutes, adding 18 points.

Throughout the game, however, an ill Robinson was seen throwing up on the sideline.

“There was a couple times I had to throw up during the game,” Robinson said. “But I didn’t know if they were going to call a foul on me if I threw up on Deron Williams and played through it. But I don’t know; we got to check the rulebook on that one.”
