Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Rose playing, CJ Watson still out

Recap from shootaround this morning, from KC Johnson:

For the second straight day, coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose is fine after logging close to 35 minutes on Monday in his return from missing five games with back spasms.

"He’s good, fine," Thibodeau said. "He did everything."

Watson suffered a mild concussion in Saturday's loss to the Nets when he ran into Kris Humphries. The NBA instituted a new policy in December. To be cleared, a player must first be free of symptoms, then remain symptom-free through increasing tests of exertion. Then, a league-hired neurologist must clear the player.

All things considered, fortunate timing for Watson as after tonight the Bulls don't play again until next Tuesday.

No word on how the league handles fan concussions self-induced from having to watch John Lucas III.
