The world will have to wait for the official word on whether Derrick Rose plays tonight against the Celtics; the MVP is a game time decision.
But if you have seen Rose lately, even as recently as practice today at the Berto Center, it’s apparent he’d be rushing back if he returns tonight.
Rose shot free throws with the Bulls at practice, but he said after that he still can’t move as well as he wants to.
I know that I don’t want to deal with it during the game, where it gets tight, then it gets irritated,” Rose said. “I think I’m going to come back when I’m ready.”
It’s looking more and more like tonight won’t be that night. But as has been discussed in the past, Rose sitting isn’t a bad thing. The Bulls need him healthy for the post season and a loss to the Celtics now is better then a loss to the Celtics in the playoffs.
