Question of the Day
Rose expects to play after MRI on ankle is negative
DEERFIELD, ILL. | It would probably take a broken bone for Derrick Rose to miss a playoff game, so consider this good news for the Chicago Bulls. His sprained left ankle is just that - sprained.
Rose plans to suit up for Game 5 on Tuesday when the Bulls try again to close out their first-round series with the Indiana Pacers.
The All-Star point guard sprained his ankle driving to the basket late in the first quarter of Game 4 on Saturday and wasn’t his usual dominant self as the Pacers beat Chicago 89-84 to avoid the sweep.
Former National Dukes faces more legal trouble
