Bulls' Derrick Rose suffers multiple injuries vs. Heat
Tuesday January 26th, 2016

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose did not play in the second half of the team’s 89–84 loss to the Miami Heat due to back and hamstring injuries, according to ESPN. 

After the game, coach Fred Hoiberg said that the team knew about the hamstring issue before entering the contest.

“We knew Derrick had a little bit of soreness before the game, and unfortunately, he went down,” Hoiberg said. “We were shorthanded going into this one at the point guard spot, so that didn't help. But you got to find a way to fight through those times.”

Rose played 13 minutes in the game, recording four points and an assist.

Hoiberg says that Rose will be evaluated on Tuesday. 

The Bulls (25–19) play the Los Angeles Lakers on the road Thursday.
