Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose did not run, but shot free throws during Thursday morning's shootaround, and is still a game-time decision to face the Boston Celtics Thursday night after missing the past three games with back spasms.
Rose didn't sound especially optimistic about his chances of playing.
"I know that it's going to be sore a little bit, but I know that I don't want to deal with it during the game, where it gets tight, then it gets irritated," Rose said. "I think I'm going to come back when I'm ready."
Take your time, Derrick. I'd hate to see you rush back and re-injure yourself.
