Derrick Rose May Sit Out NBA All-Star Game

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau says he is unsure whether reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose will play in this month’s NBA All-Star game, according to ESPN.

"He's just doing his rehab right now, so we'll see," Thibodeau said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. "We'll see where (the back situation) is when we get there," Thibodeau said during an interview with the "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "We just want to do what's best. We don't know how it will be. That's down the road."

Rose has been forced to miss the Bulls previous three games with back issues. While a recent MRI revealed that the 23-year-old had no structural damage to his back, he is still listed as day-to-day.

With Rose out of the lineup, Chicago has gone 2-1 and still remain atop the Eastern Conference standings with a 24-7 record. Through 23 games, Rose has averaged 22 points and 7.8 assists per game.

Last season he averaged 25 points and 7.7 assists per game en route to becoming the youngest MVP in NBA history.
