Not much has changed with the status of Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, who hasn't played since a March 12 victory over the New York Knicks at the United Center due to an injured groin. Rose has been day-to-day ever since, but the absence of the reigning MVP certainly hasn't slowed the Bulls: Chicago is 4-1 since went down with his latest injury in the season full of them. Coach Tom Thibodeau's team continues to have the best record in the NBA.
Rose is expected to miss his sixth straight game on Saturday when Chicago hosts the Toronto Raptors. According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Rose was scheduled to run for the first time on Friday evening since the injury. Earlier Friday, it was reported Rose ran in a pool and did shooting drills with Scottie Pippen, the Hall of Fame small forward who helped the Bulls to six championships in the '90s.
