Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose started today against the Atlanta Hawks.
Rose had missed the previous five games for the Bulls with a strained lower back. Prior to that he was held to 22-minutes-or-less in two straight games due to his back woes.
The Bulls have gone 3-2 in Rose’s absence. In 23 games this season, Rose is averaging 22 points and 7.8 assists per contest.
