Bulls Vs Celtics: Derrick Rose Out For Sunday's Game

Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose will not play Sunday against the Boston Celtics. Rose has been bothered by back spasms the past few weeks. The all-star missed Friday’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats, and also had reduced minutes against the New Orleans Hornets and New Jersey Nets.

This is a smart move for both the Bulls and Rose. Chicago is dominating so far this season so of most importance is getting Rose healthy and rested for the playoffs.

C.J. Watson will start in Rose’s place. Shooting guard Richard Hamilton will also miss Sunday’s game against the Celtics. The Bulls starting two guard has been out with a sore groin and will most likely miss another week.
