Rose, Deng out Wednesday night vs. Bobcats



CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says the team’s leading scorers Derrick Rose and Luol Deng will not play Wednesday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Rose has a sore right foot while Deng is battling a rib injury.

Earlier in the week, the Boston Celtics held out their top three players in Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and still defeated the Bobcats by 12 points. The Bobcats have lost 17 straight games.
