Rose sits out again for Bulls

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose missed his sixth straight game Saturday night because of an injury to his right groin.

Rose, last season's MVP, has progressed to a point where he can do light shooting. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said the team will make sure Rose is completely healthy before he returns to the lineup.

The Bulls have done well without their point guard. Going into the game against Toronto, they were 11-4 without Rose this season. Rose also has missed games because of toe and back issues.
