Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will be re-evaluated Friday after he injured his left hamstring in Thursday night’s game.
Rose had 20 points on 5-for-14 shooting from the floor before tweaking his hamstring late in the 100-93 win over the Toronto Raptors.
Rose did not seem too concerned about the injury.
“I guess it was cramps in my hamstrings,” Rose said after the game. “I think it is minor and they decided to pull me out.”
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose told him that he thought he had just tweaked the hamstring.
Thibodeau said an MRI on the hamstring was likely for Friday, but Rose was hopeful he wouldn’t have to have one.
“I don’t think it’s that serious,” Rose said. “Just ice it, stim, see if I can practice (Friday) and give it a go Saturday.”
The injury occurred with less than two minutes left in the fourth quarter. Rose turned over the ball and fell to the floor before walking gingerly back to the bench.
“I don’t know, man,” Rose said. “Just missing two years, now you’re just going to fall for no reason I guess, man. Just trying to work every day, put in consistent work every day. And don’t lose any confidence with these setbacks.”
Rose has missed four games this season because of sprained ankles.
