CHICAGO (AP) Bulls guard Derrick Rose has left Chicago's game against the Miami Heat with lower back and right hamstring injuries.

Rose, who scored four points in 13 first-half minutes Monday night, did not start the second half. The Bulls announced early in the third quarter that he would not return.

Aaron Brooks took Rose's place with the starting unit.

The Bulls were already playing without backup guards Kirk Hinrich (bruised left quadriceps) and E'Twaun Moore (right hamstring strain).
