The “Return of Rose” isn’t going exactly to plan.
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose left Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with what the team is calling a “minor” right hamstring injury, according to CBS Sports.
Rose went down late in the fourth quarter with a visible limp after making a layup, and was tended to by Bulls staff on the bench. The team will re-evaluate the injury on Tuesday, and D-Rose said he “should be ready” for Friday’s matchup against against the Toronto Raptors, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Rose is returning from a torn ACL he suffered during the 2012 NBA playoffs. He finished Monday night’s game with 16 points, seven assists and three rebounds in the Bulls’ 96-81 win over the Cavs.
