Good ol’ Vinny Del Negro. What happens when you talk too much (I have first hand knowledge) is that the thoughts come out before you can check them at the door. Vinny Del Negro did this regarding Derrick Rose and his injury status.
Late Monday, Del Negro first said it’s in the realm of possibility Rose could miss the Oct. 29 season opener against the Spurs, reversing his answer to the same question from three days earlier. Then Del Negro backtracked a bit and Rose added there’s “no way” he would miss the game.
Whatever the case, it’s not good. The Bulls have one exhibition game left and the 5 days before the Spurs game. I want my Derrick Rose come opening night.
For his part, Rose said: “When it first happened, I had no chance to play. But the fluid is gone. It’s just sore.”
Still–not good. I’d hate for him to have to miss games. But if it means nipping this in the bud, then he better sit.
