Ailing back keeps Bulls’ Rose on bench again
BOSTON — Derrick Rose was out again for the Bulls' game against Boston on Sunday with what coach Tom Thibodeau called “stiffness” in his back and will see a specialist when the team gets back to Chicago.
The reigning MVP also missed Friday’s win at Charlotte.
“It’s not as cleared up as we would have liked right now,” Thibodeau said before Sunday’s game. “He’s still got some stiffness. We thought it would be better to have him sit out.”
Rose injured his back earlier in the week and was limited in a win over New Orleans on Wednesday.
