Report: Rose won't play against Heat

Despite recent speculation, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose reportedly "strongly considered" playing against the Heat, but "ultimately decided against it."

Report: Derrick Rose Considered Returning Against Heat, But Changed His Mind

Between Rose, the Bulls, his teammates, other players and “sources”, this has been a textbook way of how not to handle a superstar coming back from injury. This could have been so easy. I would have ruled Derrick Rose out for the entire season at the All-Star break, even if I knew it was a chance that he could come back at any time. That would have stopped all the questions about...

Derrick Rose GMAIL Inbox is Quite Comical (Photo)

I blame the Bulls for the slander Rose is taking right now. If they would have handled this public relations aspect of this properly, people would have just assumed Rose was still legitimately hurt. Now, everyone knows that the only thing wrong with Rose is mentally he isn’t ready to play and they are jumping all over him for it. As long as it isn’t malicious, I think it is fair...

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. They had to wait until at least 1st round is over, to know what date and time, so it had to be recent. No need to tease Bulls fans like this. That is cruel and unusual punishment. H/T @dan_bernstein

Derrick Rose 'strongly' considered comeback against Heat

Early on in the Chicago Bulls' second-round series against the Miami Heat, there were reports that point guard Derrick Rose would dress for Game 3. This never happened, and Sam Aggrey of CSN Chicago reports that coach Tom Thibodeau is aware that Rose will not return during the team's series against the Heat. However, Aggrey adds that Rose "strongly" considered...

Contrary to Reports Derrick Rose Will Not Return In Game 3 of Heat vs. Bulls

This has to be difficult on Bulls fans. Before and after Game 2 of the Heat vs. Bulls series a bunch of unconfirmed reports surfaced that Rose would be making his triumphant return to the Bulls in Game 3 of the series. There reports were very vague, they went from, he would definitely play to he would wear his uniform, but just sit on the bench (which made absolutely no sense...

Grant Hill and the price of returning too soon

Pretty much all of us have had something to say about the Derrick Rose saga, and most of the comments have been critical. Now we have an interesting perspective from Grant Hill, who is convinced he returned too soon from a serious ankle injury after he too was cleared to play by his doctors. Part of the Rose controversy was fueled by Rose’s own brother, who implied Rose didn...

Report: Derrick Rose Strongly Considered Returning against Heat, But Changed his Mind

For the life of me I’ll never understand why the Chicago Bulls didn’t just rule out Derrick Rose for the season when it was clear that their young star was not ready. The Bulls and Rose have found themselves subject to criticism from numerous outlets, and they really have nobody to blame but themselves. Never [...]

NBA on TNT discussing Derrick Rose wasting of all our time

Every bit of hate Derrick Rose has inspired in Chicago Bulls and NBA fans- he’s truly earned it. Yes, both the Chicago Bulls front office/media relations and Derrick Rose himself are to blame on this clusterf….. However, Derrick Rose is the highly paid superstar; he’s the icon. It’s on him to rise above and do something about why the whole city (rightfully) hates him currently...

Penny Hardaway, Grant Hill preach patience for Derrick Rose

With the Eastern Conference Semifinals shifting to Chicago for the next two games, the attention has turned toward Derrick Rose once again. Anticipation has been that if Rose were to make a return to the court this season, it would have to be at home for maximum momentum and comfort. Since Derrick Rose will not slam the door on his return by saying he is coming back one way or...

Chicago Bulls Franchise Does Not Take Care Of Its Players

In the past few weeks, there has been plenty of discussion in the sports blogosphere about the condition of Derrick Rose’s health, and whether or not he should be playing in the playoffs. Chicago Bulls medical staff and officials cleared Rose to play close to two months ago, and although he’s been practicing, Rose doesn’t feel ready for game-action. Not yet. Given that it...

Joakim Noah doesn’t let obscene gestures ruin his day

Chicago Bulls canter Joakim Noah said Thursday that getting a middle finger thrown into his face as he walked off the court after getting ejected in Game 2 on Wednesday against the Miami Heat wasn’t fun but it wouldn’t ruin his day. “Do you have fun when

As expected, the Chicago Bulls entered their Game 3 matchup against the Miami Heat without forward Luol Deng or guards Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose.
