Derrick Rose out against Raptors

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Don't panic, Bulls fans. He's OK.

After missing practice on Thursday and sitting out shootaround, Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose is "unlikely" to play against the Raptors on Friday morning, and then ruled him out entirely pregame.

Rose is recovering from a mild hamstring injury he suffered a week ago against the Cavs.

"It's not a concern at all," Rose said on Thursday. "I think everything I do or if I get hurt, it can be anything, it's going to be blown out of proportion. I'm doing fine and it shouldn't be anything to worry about."

Rose, 25, has struggled to begin the season after missing all of last year recovering from ACL surgery. He's averaging 14.7 points and 4.5 assists in six games.
