Derrick Rose was back for one game Sunday following his groin injury, and there he was in a walking boot on Monday.
Because of an injured ankle he is a game-time decision for the Bulls in Tuesday rematch with the Knicks, reports the Chicago Tribune.
Rose, for starters, tweaked an ankle at some point in Sunday’s game, which he finished. The extent of the injury is unknown, however sources said Rose wore a walking boot on Monday and his availability for Tuesday’s shot at redemption against the Knicks is a game-time decision.
The Bulls can expect a desperate Knicks team Sunday, as they remain tied with the 76ers just 1.5 games ahead of the Bucks (who the Knicks face Wednesday) for the last playoff spot in the East. The Bulls, however are just two games up on the Heat for the best record overall and home court throughout the playoffs.
Check back to PBT for updates Tuesday as we wait for word on Rose’s condition and status.
