08:15 AM ET 01.17 | Sitting out with a toe injury isn't what has some worried. What if Derrick Rose gets hurt and misses significant time? Let's take it a painful step further into the declarative. Derrick Rose will get hurt and miss significant time. That's not doom-and-gloom stuff. It's not worst-case scenario stuff. You've seen him play. You've seen how he drives to the basket like a horse that's finally escaped its overturned trailer. You tell me: Is this guy not a three-month injury waiting to happen? A broken bone? A torn ligament? Altitude sickness from jumping so high? ... With the way Rose attacks a game, a major injury is likely someday. It hurts just to write that.

Turf toe, that means your seriously planting your feet on turns and cuts towards the basket.

How is this differed for any other day? And my old high school football coach would always tell the team that playing passive is the best way to get hurt anyway. Injures will happen regardless (just ask Boozer) and it not because he was playing too hard.

Nothing lasts forever.

Any player can get hurt.

Time to shut him down for a couple of weeks and let that toe heal. They can still win games without him. They just have to avoid the type of garbage basketball that they displayed against the Grizzlies yesterday.

Not as much as it does to read this. The Sun Times is garbage

And I might get in a car accident due to driving...crack reporting by the Sun Times

I've been saying the same thing about Westbook's approach to the game. These two need to evolve their game before a major injury takes away the thing that makes them special.
