07:20 AM ET 11.12 | Gasp ... again. This may change over time, but for now there is no such thing as a minor Derrick Rose injury. Rose got the best of Cleveland guard Kyrie Irving, and the Bulls used a late surge to finish off a 96-81 victory over the Cavaliers on Monday night at the United Center. But it was tough to ignore that moment with 3:15 remaining in the contest when coach Tom Thibodeau called timeout specifically to get Rose off the floor. The reason was a hamstring injury that all parties insisted was minor. It seemed to happen when Rose exploded through the Cleveland defense for a fastbreak bucket with 3:39 left. The Cavs called timeout, and when play resumed, the Bulls decided Rose shouldn't be on the floor. ... [The] hope is Rose will get better during a three-day break before playing Friday at Toronto.

You cannot play NOT to get hurt or you surely will.

Isn't he the bionic man? He said he was better, stinger, can jump higher, shoot 3 pointers...

He won't be back until he feels 150% healthy.

exactly.
Night after night he's shooting 6/20, 4/19 etc.
Still not passing the ball, still going 1 on 5...
Management still hasn't gone him the real help he needs, and it's gonna be something when Deng bolts for the lakers.

It's not good when players talk especially if they can't back up what they yap about.

Even with Rose 110%, there aren't enough pieces around him for Chicago to be better than a 3 or 4 seed.

QUOTE(#17):

he was the whole offense that year ..it was basically spead the floor and let D rose go one on one....he had to shoot that year

he still has that same approach.
different is he isn't shooting a good percentage thus far, he's going 6/19, 4/16....
With 4+ turnovers and maybe 3,4 assists.

Rose 16 points (on 8-of-21 shooting), 7 assists and no turnovers.

Irving 16 points (on 5-of-19 shooting), 4 assists and 3 turnovers.
