Derrick Rose Injury Update: Chicago Bulls Point Guard May Miss Tuesday's Game

On the heels of the Chicago Bulls' (12-3) win-streak-snapping loss to the Memphis Grizzlies (6-6), the Bulls have received some additional unpleasant news concerning their star PG Derrick Rose:

Rose, the reigning MVP from the 2010-2011 season, has already missed two games in the 2011-2012 season. Because of the NBA lockout in 2011, the Bulls' 2011-2012 schedule is highly compressed, so smaller injuries can have a much more potent effect.

The Bulls are now 1-1 without Rose, who leads the team with 271 points and 113 assists. Rose entered the league as the top overall draft pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. In 252 NBA games, Rose has a .467 FG% and has averaged 20.9 PPG.
