Derrick Rose Injured, X-Rays Negative

Breathe through your nose, Chicago. Derrick Rose got injured Wednesday night against the Magic, but it looks as if it isn’t too serious.

Early in the first quarter, Rose held a dribble behind the three-point arc. He received a pick from Taj Gibson and blew by the Magic defenders and got to the basket for a lay-in. Waiting for him there was Dwight Howard. Howard went for the block and Rose was fouled. Rose hit the floor hard and lay there for a spell. He got up and made the free throw but then had to leave the game.

After initial x-rays were negative, the injury is thought to be a bruised hip and not a fracture. But Rose will still have a MRI taken to be certain.

The Bulls got crushed 107-87 without their All-Star guard. Rose received his jersey and was sworn in for the U.S. men’s basketball team just before the game. Here are the lowlights:
