Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose left the fourth quarter of his team's win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday with a noticeable limp.

Rose left after coming up limping on a layup with less than four minutes remaining in the Bulls' eventual 96-81 win, which was billed as a prime matchup between Rose and Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving.

After the game, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Rose has a minor right hamstring injury. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Rose had 16 points and seven assists before he left the game. He missed all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL.
