The NBA preseason is in full swing as we inch closer to the start of the regular season on Oct. 27. With just two weeks to go, teams are ramping up their preparations for the long haul ahead.
Check out the latest NBA news and rumors below:
• Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters that it is doubtful that point guard Derrick Rose will play in their season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose sustained a broken orbital bone at practice on Sept. 29 and underwent surgery.
• Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said the team stills views second-year forward Jabari Parker as a rookie, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPN. Parker played in just 18 games last season before tearing his ACL.
