Rose (ankle) posted 17 points (7-20 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, and four rebounds in 35 minutes Tuesday against the Blazers. Rose returned from a two-game absence and seemed to be pretty rusty with his shot. That being said, he logged 35 minutes and owners should be positive in his outlook moving forward. He's shooting under 40 percent from the field this season, and is still struggling to contribute outside of points and assists -- but patience may be key for the former MVP.
Rose (ankle) will play in Tuesday's game against Portland, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. As expected after putting in a full practice Sunday and Monday, Rose will be in the lineup Tuesday, marking his return from a two-game absence. With Rose back, the Bulls will likely shift Kirk Hinrich to the bench, and at this point it does not appear Rose will be on any sort of minutes restriction. The former MVP is averaging 13.6 points and 6.0 assists per game this season, but he's shooting just 37.7 percent from the field and a paltry 15.0 percent from three.
Rose (ankle) put in a full practice Monday and is expected to play Tuesday, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports. As has been the goal for the past couple of days, Rose is on track to return Tuesday against Portland after missing the last two games with a sprained ankle. Rose's return should result in Kirk Hinrich returning to the bench, and E'Twaun Moore will likely see a reduction in minutes, as well.
Rose (ankle) went through a full practice Sunday and is hoping to return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports. Rose has missed the last two games, as he's recovering from a sprained left ankle. He was able to go through a full practice Sunday without any restrictions and is hoping to play Tuesday. Knowing Rose's injury history, the Bulls still could hold him out again, as they're not going to want to force him back into action too soon. Rose should be considered questionable for Tuesday's outing. If Rose doesn't play and Aaron Brooks is healthy, Brooks will likely move into the starting lineup. Otherwise, E'Twaun Moore and Kirk Hinrich would see the biggest increase in minutes.
Rose (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Warriors, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports. This marks the second game in a row that Rose will have to miss after injuring his ankle last Monday against the Pacers. With Aaron Brooks (hamstring) still sidelined as well, look for the Bulls to go with a similar backcourt combination to Wednesday, when they started Kirk Hinrich next to Jimmy Butler. Along with Hinrich, E'Twaun Moore should be in line for a large bump in minutes. Consider Rose questionable for Tuesday's outing versus the Blazers.
