After injuring an ankle against the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is once again trying to battle through an injury and get himself back on the floor. But his return probably will not come in Tuesday night's rematch against New York.

Prior to injuring his ankle, Rose missed a significant period of time with a groin injury. He's also endured back spasms and a toe injury this season. Fortunately for Rose, he has over two weeks before the regular season ends to rest and recover from this latest setback -- if need be.
