Derrick Rose Suffer Yet Another Injury – This Time It’s His Left Hamstring

One can’t imagine what must be going through the mind of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose after suffering yet another injury in Chicago’s Thursday night 100-93 victory over the Toronto Raptors on the road.

The injury, which occurred late in the fourth quarter with just over two minutes remaining, happened on a play where Rose turned the ball over in the lane before falling to the ground. Rose, who has already missed four games this season due to sprained ankles, got back to his feet and walked gingerly back to the bench. He did not return.

Rose, who will be re-evaluated on Friday, did not seem too concerned after the game.

“I guess it’s cramps in my hamstrings,” Rose said. “But I think it’s minor, and they decided to pull me out.”

After the game, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that Rose would probably have n MRI on the hamstring on Friday. But Rose hopes that prior treatment will prevent him from needing to go through the procedure and that he could possibly return to practice on Friday.

“I don’t think it’s that serious,” Rose said. “Just ice it, stim [stimulate], see if I can practice [Friday] and give it a go Saturday.”

On the play in question, Rose was not really sure what happened.

“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.”

As to what caused the injury, Derrick Rose surmised that it was just cramps.

“Just over-stepped. Probably stretched it out a little bit more with my left leg, and probably got a cramp in it,” Rose said. “It just comes with the process in missing two years.

“This is going to happen. I’ve talked to a lot of people who have had surgeries. My agent (B.J. Armstrong) had five or six surgeries. Just trying to do everything right. Eat right, hydrate right, stretch right, work on my flexibility. Just try to put everything on my side … just trying to get better.”
