Derrick Rose leaves game late after suffering hamstring injury (VIDEO)

Nov 11, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

The Bulls and the Cavs played a largely defensive-oriented game devoid of very many highlights, and the one that Derrick Rose provided late as his team was pulling away forced him to leave the game with what was later described as a minor hamstring injury.

Rose gave us a glimpse of his signature explosiveness as he drove end-to-end for a layup that put his team up by seven with 3:39 remaining. But he was seen wincing and limping a bit immediately afterward, and was subbed out for the remainder of the game shortly thereafter as a precaution.

As with all things related to Rose’s health, the world will be watching. Although this particular setback didn’t appear to be all that serious.

    I’ll admit I made some jokes about Rose, “The Return” but can we move on? Rose is great for the game and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to see you’re favorite player get a significant injury.

      With that being said, I have to wonder if “The Return Part Two” ever crossed Rose mind during the game. Now that he’ll have time to make the commercial.

    I wonder which fractured PG will play more games this year? Rose or Irving?

    I’m sure most of the world has no idea who Rose is so I doubt they’ll be watching.

    Isn’t anybody going to say that Thibs has played Rose for too many minutes?
