Derrick Rose Injury: No Decision On Guard's Status For Boston Celtics Game Until Friday

A sprained big toe kept Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose from playing in the team's game against Washington on Wednesday, though the Bulls had no trouble beating the Wizards without him.

Johnson, Rose reportedly has told people that his toe felt better Thursday.
