Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose’s left hamstring hampered him in the first half of Tuesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets, and he did not return for the second half as the Bulls fell 114-109.

The Bulls officially listed the injury as left hamstring tightness, but Rose said after the game his hamstring was fine and he did not have a setback. He was “just trying to be smart” given his recent injury history.

“It wasn’t nothing like I’m limping or I pulled it or anything, it wasn’t any of that,” Rose said. “It was just that I wasn’t moving the way I wanted to while I was on the floor. So why push through it when I wasn’t able to affect the game the way I wanted to? I came in here and talked to (Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau) and we both agreed on just sitting out.”
