Derrick Rose OK to play Game 5 vs Pacers despite ankle sprainPosted by Inside Hoops
K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports:
Derrick Rose participated in the walkthrough portion of Tuesday’s morning shootaround and got individual shots up afterward, reiterating he planned to play on his sprained left ankle as the Chicago Bulls try to close out the Indiana Pacers in Game 5.
“It’s good,” Rose said. “I gotta get treatment and then I’m out there. (Monday), it was a little stiff. Today, I got more more motion in it.”
Coach Tom Thibodeau said of Rose: “He’s feeling better. We’ll see how he feels before the game.”
