When will the war against Derrick Rose end?! The League apparently asked him to stop wearing tape on his sore neck. Per the ESPN: “I think the NBA told me I got to stop,’ Rose said before Wednesday morning’s shootaround. ‘So I probably won’t be able to wear it tonight.’ Rose says he never got an explanation from the league as to why it doesn’t want to see the tape. The Bulls face off against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night. ‘I don’t know, man,’ Rose said. ‘I don’t even want to get into that. I don’t know. I swear I don’t know.’ Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau wasn’t sure exactly how the ruling came down from the league. ‘They’re pretty strict on what they allow and what they don’t allow,’ Thibodeau said. ‘So that’s just the way it is.’ Rose said the injury has improved over the past week.”
