Derrick Rose Injury: Doug Collins Says 76ers Are 'Sick To Their Stomachs' Over What Happened

After Derrick Rose tore an ACL in the late stages of the Bulls' win over Philadelphia on Saturday, 76ers head coach Doug Collins was asked for his opinion on the matter.

"I think everyone on our team and organization is sick to their stomachs today about what happened to that young guy," said Sixers coach Doug Collins. "I was in contact with Pax [Bulls VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson] last night, Jerry Reinsdorf and Thibs, just letting them know how we feel about the young guy. He’s everything that’s right about the NBA and I know he’s heartbroken about not being able to be a part of this."
