Bulls shouldn't be without Rose for long

Posted on: March 12, 2010 2:39 pm
 
The Bulls got welcome news on All-Star point guard Derrick Rose's left wrist Friday when MRI results came back negative, according to a source. Rose will be re-evaluated further, but the original diagnosis of a sprained left wrist turned out to be accurate.

Losing Rose for an extended time would've all but crushed Chicago's playoff hopes. The Bulls, in a fight for the eighth playoff spot in the East, saw Rose go down hard after colliding with Orlando's Dwight Howard on a drive to the basket in a 111-82 loss to the Magic on Thursday night. It was the second time this season that Rose was injured in a collision with Howard.

Bulls shouldn't be without Rose for long

Without Rose the Bulls are definitely out of the playoffs. Unfortunately, Joakim Noah is still injured which is hurting the Bulls chances even more. With the energetic big man out of action the Bulls are losing almost 11 ppg and 11 rpg. Noah is the energizer bunny for the Bulls. He goes out there and plays with heart and enthusiasm every play of the game. Also Noah has tremendously improved his game (his jump shot and post up abilities are better this year). 

The Bulls have 18 games remaining. 9 away from the United Center and 9 against playoff teams. If the Bulls are going to make the playoffs they need to start working on all cylinders now. Rose needs to take over and Noah desperately needs to get healthy.
