Bulls guard Derrick Rose (knee) to play Monday vs. Magic
Rose played in 11 straight games before missing Saturday’s 95-87 win against the Milwaukee Bucks due to left knee soreness.
He has played in 27 of the team’s 38 games this season, averaging 16.9 points, 4.8 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 29 minutes per game, while shooting 39.8 percent from the field and 25.5 percent on three-pointers.
Rose missed the entire 2012-13 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and played only 10 games last season following a medial meniscus tear in his right knee.
The Bulls (26-12) are in third place in the Eastern Conference, 3.5 games behind the Atlanta Hawks.
