Derrick Rose Likely Out Against Magic Tonight

NBA

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will likely be sidelined again in Monday night’s game against the Orlando Magic due to a groin injury, according to ESPN.

Rose sustained the injury on March 12 when New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin blocked his shot.  The Bulls are 2-1 in the three straight games Rose has been absent.

Although not officially ruled out by coach Tom Thibodeau, Rose could possibly miss his 14th game this season due to injury.

Leading the first-place Bulls (37-10), Rose is averaging 22.8 points and eight assists this season.
