Derrick Rose wore two strips of kinesio tape on either side of his neck to ease soreness during Thursday’s 81-80 win over the Knicks. Rose told the Chicago Tribune that if he has a “breakthrough game” wearing it, he’ll continue to wear the tape on his neck—which is said to relax tight muscles—for the rest of the season:
How long will DRose wear the neck tape? "As long as the league allows me to. If I have a breakthrough game, I might wear it the whole year."
