Derrick Rose will miss his second straight game with what he describes as turf toe, according to ESPN Chicago. The star also missed the Bulls' Monday loss to the Grizzlies. Rose has been wearing a boot to alleviate the pain in his foot. Interestingly, Tom Thibodeau has described the injury not as turf toe, but a sprain. 

John Lucas or C.J. Watson will start in Rose's place. Lucas had 28 points in his debut a week ago, but struggled against the Grizzlies, while Watson played well for two quarters against Memphis before Mike Conley ate his lunch in the fourth. The Bulls have endured a long and intense schedule of games, part of the reason for the Bulls to be cautious as to not exhaust the reigning MVP.
