All-Star point guard Derrick Rose is out for his 10th straight game, missing the Chicago Bulls game with the West-leading Oklahoma City because of an injured right groin.
Coach Tom Thibodeau said before Sunday's game between the teams with the NBA's two best records that Rose is ''moving along the way that we anticipated'' and doing more each day in practice.
Rose was stretching in the weight room before tip-off.
Richard Hamilton was a game-time decision because of an injured right shoulder. He has missed 13 straight games and played in only 16 of Chicago's 53 games so far this season with a variety of injuries.
