Derrick Rose Suffers ‘Minor’ Hamstring Injury (VIDEO)

by November 12, 2013

After converting yet another twisting layup through a maze of defenders, Derrick Rose tweaked his hamstring and was forced to leave the game late in the fourth quarter. The Chicago Bulls hung on for a 96-81 victory over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers, and Rose says the injury is no big deal. Per the Daily Herald: “Derrick Rose had 16 points before leaving in the fourth quarter with a right hamstring injury, and the Bulls pulled away from the Cleveland Cavaliers for a 96-81 victory on Monday night at United Center. Rose grimaced after he drove down the lane for a twisting layup with 3:39 left. He remained in the game for a short time before he was pulled for Kirk Hinrich, and a trainer then attended to the 2011 NBA MVP at the end of the bench. ‘It’s just a minor sprain,’ Rose said. ‘Nothing bad.’ Rose will be re-evaluated on Tuesday, and he said he thought he would be able to play Friday night at Toronto.”
