Derrick Rose Suffering from Turf Toe

by January 12, 2012

Derrick Rose sat out Chicago’s win against the Wizards last night, with what the team is calling “turn toe.” Per the Sun-Times: “Rose injured his toe in Tuesday night’s win at Minnesota. He left the game, had his toe re-taped and returned to help the Bulls hold off the Timberwolves. The Bulls have signed veteran point guard Mike James from the D-League, according to multiple reports. With C.J. Watson still recovering from an elbow injury, John Lucas III is the only true point guard on the roster … Rose said after Tuesday night’s game that he has dealt with ‘turf toe’ on and off during his career and did not want to sit out any games. Evidently, the injury did not respond to treatment overnight.”
