Derrick Rose Injury: Point Guard OUT Against Sixers

According to the Chicago Bulls official Twitter account, Derrick Rose, along with Rip Hamilton, will not suit up Saturday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose has missed the Bulls' last two games with a pulled groin. The Bulls have gone 1-1 in those games, including a stunning win over the Miami Heat. Chicago, like Philadelphia, will be playing the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday.

The Sixers and Bulls have met twice this season, with each team winning once. Both games were played at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The last time these teams met was less than two weeks ago on March 4, when Derrick Rose torched Jrue Holiday and the Sixers for 35 points and eight assists.

I'm sure the Sixers are pleased Rose will be in street clothes.
