The start of the Circus Trip just got less fun.
Thibs says Rose is doing a little better, did a little more today, but he will not play against Clippers.— Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) November 17, 2014
Being cautious is good, and sitting games out is fine, but it's still a bummer to hear. It's always been a joy when Derrick Rose got to go up against (and often physically overwhelm) Chris Paul in the past.
Last season the Bulls trip to face the Clippers was their first game after Rose tore his meniscus, and they got freaking demolished.
I will say it's kind of nice they didn't pretend Rose would go through warmups and decide later.
Bulls don't play again until Thursday.
