CHICAGO (AP) -- Bulls star Derrick Rose remains day to day for Chicago because of lower back spasms.

Rose was examined Monday by a specialist, and general manager Gar Forman says no structural damage was found. That's good news for the Eastern Conference-leading Bulls.

The league's reigning MVP, Rose is averaging 22.0 points and 7.8 assists, but he's missed seven games because of problems with his back and left big toe. He sat out the past two games at Charlotte and Boston and being limited in the previous two.

Chicago plays Sacramento on Tuesday.
