Found May 10, 2013 on NBA Injury News:

Earlier this week, a report began circulating that Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose might dress for Game 3 of the team’s series against the Miami Heat. If he was going to dress, there was thought that he could finally return to the court after his recovery from a significant knee injury. However, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters -- including Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago -- yesterday that Rose’s status hasn’t changed, meaning he’s unlikely to suit up for tonight’s game.As the Bulls continue their unexpected run through the playoffs, all eyes have been on Rose. The All-Star has been cleared medically to return, and he’s taking part and even excelling in 5-on-5 scrimmages.Still, Rose continues to be sidelined, as he says he’s just not ready to return yet. There’s speculation that the hesitation is mostly mental, but Rose recently said that he’s still in the process of regaining muscle memory.While a timeline hasn’t been provided, Rose and the Bulls continue to leave the door open for a potential return. Chicago could certainly use him tonight, and it would be a significant boost if he were able to log meaningful minutes. Still, it seems like most will believe Rose is returning this season when they see it.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

Derrick Rose Pictured on Game 3 Playoff Tickets

Maybe the Bulls really did expected him back in Game 3 and then Rose trolled them. I have to ask someone how far in advance this tickets are printed.
