Due to a groin injury suffered in Mondays win over New York, Derrick Rose is a game-time decision heading into Wednesdays showdown with the Heat, according to Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau.
Well see tonight if its any better, said Thibodeau. We held him out this morning.
In addition to his on-court ailments, Rose was involved in a car accident after leaving Tuesdays practice, getting rear-ended on the Kennedy Expressway.
While Rose was unavailable for comment, Thibodeau said, He said hes fine.
Another game-time decision for the Bulls is backup point guard C.J. Watson, who is still recovering from a sprained left ankle.
Im not sure yet, so well see, Watson told CSNChicago.com. Watsons ankle is the same, still sore. Its a lot of stuff. None better, none worse.
Watson practiced Wednesday a little bit. Still hurts a lot. Im not really comfortable planting and moving, stuff like that, to where I can play without hurting, he continued. All Watson did in practice Wednesday was shooting, straight-ahead stuff.
Luol Deng, on the other hand, will play Wednesday. The All-Star missed two games to rest his ailing left wrist.
