Bulls G Derrick Rose (ankle) out vs. Knicks on Tuesday

The MVP will take another DNP.

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has been moved to the inactive list for Tuesday night's game against the New York Knicks due to an ankle injury, according to the New York Times.

The injury led Rose to wear a walking boot on Monday. He was listed as a game-time decision on Tuesday and went through pre-game warm-ups before the decision was made to rest him. 

Rose played 38 minutes against the Knicks on Sunday after sitting out 12 consecutive games with a groin injury. In that game, Rose missed two critical free throws that would have iced the game and was 0-for-2 on potential game-winning shots in regulation and overtime. He finished with 29 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists, but committed 8 turnovers.

The Bulls are currently the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference with a record of 43-14. 

Rose, 23, is averaging 23.0 points, 7.9 assists, 3.5 rebounds in 35 games this season.
