Injured Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose says he will not suit up against Miami on Wednesday and sounds like a player who just might miss the entire season.
Rose squashed rumors that he might make his long anticipated return from surgery on his left knee against LeBron James and the Heat with two words at the morning shootaround: ''Not tonight.'' The comments came in the wake of a Twitter post by rapper Waka Flocka Flame, who wrote, ''Word is D.Rose back.''
Rose and the rapper are fans of each other, but the former MVP said he's not sure when he'll be back. He said his return is ''in God's hands.''
The Heat are on a 27-game win streak, trailing only the 33 straight by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72.

Derrick Rose may not return to the Chicago Bulls this season, but if he does, it looks like he’ll be ready.
Video of Rose playing some of his teammates in one-on-one shows him making hard cuts and quick changes of direction just like he used to before he went down with an ACL tear during the first round of the playoffs last year.

As Professor Farnsworth would say on "Futurama," good news everyone! Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose is back on the practice court and going full blast on that injured knee. Yesterday, the All-Star guard went through one-on-one drills (h/t Beyond The Buzzer) with his teammates where he showed he hasn't lost touch on his jumper and still has that quick first-step...
There was a prediction that existed among optimistic Chicago Bulls fans that their MVP Derrick Rose would pick Wednesday to return to the lineup to vanquish the mighty Miami Heat.

Deep down, Chicagoans don't prefer restaurants with ferns and fancy food as much as joints with sausage and beef, and don't skimp on the peppers. No lightweight palm trees, they are still fighting 20 degrees and snow in spring. And in sports, they prefer winning but accept losing, as long as the other guy goes home with a bloody nose.
That's what's giving Chicago...
The Heat had not lost a game since February 1st. Until now. The fact is they were very close to closing out the month of March without losing. But then there were the Chicago Bulls. They played without their best player Derrick Rose yet again. The Miami Heat loveem or hate em will go down in history as having the second longest winning streak in NBA history. The fact that it took...
As long as there are sports—and let’s hope it’s forever—there will always be comebacks. That can mean a team coming back from a deficit, an athlete returning from a devastating injury or a guy coming out of retirement to lace ‘em up again. With the entire NBA awaiting Derrick Rose’s return to the Bulls lineup, [...]
The Miami Heat marched into the United Center Wednesday night, fully aware of a looming date with destiny, and equal standing with the 1972 Lakers. Meanwhile, the Bulls trotted out a lineup without Derrick Rose (despite Wacka Flocka Flame’s dubious claim that the star point guard would play) and All-Star center Joakim Noah. So, easy 28th consecutive win, right? Wrong. The Bulls...
The Chicago Bulls, without Derrick Rose, Marco Bellineli or Joakim Noah, ended the Miami Heat’s massive 27-game winning streak Wednesday night and LeBron James was just a tad upset.
