Bucks Vs. Bulls: Derrick Rose To Play Against Milwaukee

The Chicago Bulls will once again have starting point guard Derrick Rose in the lineup as they face the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago. Rose previously missed five games recently with back spasms, but he played in Chicago's most recent game against the Atlanta Hawks and is expected to play once again against Milwaukee.

Even while having the limiting back injury, Rose played well against Atlanta on Feb. 20, scoring 23 points on 8-of-18 shooting in addition to grabbing five rebounds and dishing six assists. A relatively healthy Rose would obviously be a nice boost for the Bulls against the Bucks, who happen to have an explosive young point guard of their own in Brandon Jennings.
