Derrick Rose Sprains Ankle in Bulls’ Loss

The MVP finished the game after he came up hobbling after going for a layup in the second quarter. But the Bulls couldn’t complete the sweep, losing to the Pacers 89-84. From The Chicago Tribune: “DRose said he had his sprained left ankle X-rayed and it’s nothing more than a sprain. Walked gingerly leaving podium.”

    As a Lakers fan, I want LeBron to win the regular season MVP.

    I hope Derrick is ok, I want to see the Bulls smack the Magic. I was rooting for the Bulls to make a comeback. If they did, it would have probably been the most competitive sweep in the playoffs in the last 20 years. The Pacers are putting up a good fight, so I guess it will be the most competitive 5-game series in the last 20 years.

    dont know what’s more used in the playoffs, the word ginger/gingerly or kevin mchale always reminding us that the blazers lead the league in alley oops

    @everything- I think the word “soft” is used the most.

    indeed, after last night BRoy showed he should get the mvp.


    So that’s why the Bulls lost game 4. Rose sprained his ankle. SMH rofl
