Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is out for Game 4 of the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers because of a sprained left ankle.
In the Chicago Bulls’ seven playoffs games this season, Derrick Rose has rolled his ankle twice. He’s been good in the playoffs so far, averaging 26.7 points per game, but he hasn’t been his usual self since the injury.
Derrick Rose did not participate in the Bulls shoot around practice this morning and officially is being listed as questionable. However, Rose assured reporters that he will play tonight and is feeling better.
Derrick Rose is the most valuable player on the Chicago Bulls, and the entire NBA, this season. The Bulls fans know this. The entire league knows this. The entire world knows this.
Derrick Rose sat out practice on Monday with his sprained ankle but says he will play in Game 5, “It’s not broke so I’m definitely playing.”
Derrick Rose was in a walking boot and headed for an MRI exam on his sprained left ankle on Sunday. The rest of the Bulls were hurting, too.
