Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors as he recovers from a pulled groin that he suffered on March 12 against the New York Knicks. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters that the team will determine Rose's status for the game just before its start.
The injury occurred in the Bulls' win against the Knicks when Jeremy Lin made an impressive block on one of Rose's drives to the hoop early in the game. Rose fought through the injury during the night, but he's missed the past four games as he gets healthy.
Rose has already missed 14 games this season with a variety of injuries, but the Bulls are 10-4 without him in the lineup. The reigning MVP has averaged 22.8 points and eight assists per game this season.
