Bulls' Derrick Rose leaves Cavaliers game with apparent ankle injury

Saturday November 1st, 2014

After landing awkwardly in the second quarter of Chicago's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night, the Bulls' Derrick Rose was able to return briefly before heading to the locker room during the fourth quarter and not returning to the court.

Rose appeared to roll his left ankle and came up hobbling after a put-back lay-up that cut Cleveland's lead to 48-42 with just over four minutes remaining in the first half.

Rose played during the third quarter, but in nine minutes scored only two points.
