DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says star point guard Derrick Rose experienced no setbacks after returning from a back problem.
He says Rose will play Wednesday against Milwaukee. Rose scored 23 points Monday in a win over Atlanta after missing the previous five games because of lower back pain. The Bulls did not practice on Tuesday.
Thibodeau also said after the morning shootaround that backup point guard C.J. Watson will miss his second straight game. Watson left Saturday’s loss to New Jersey after taking a blow to the head from the Nets’ Kris Humphries.
