Derrick Rose Injury: Bulls PG Out For 2nd Half With Back Spasms

Derrick Rose headed into the locker room late in the second quarter on Monday night, and it appears his back is bothering him again. He'll skip the second half of the team's game against New Jersey, according to ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell.

With the Bulls rolling over the Nets, and New Orleans and Charlotte on the horizon, it's a good time to rest Rose, if that is necessary. Rose finished with four points in 11 minutes against the Nets.
