Rose suffered an ankle injury over the weekend and was spotted in a boot on Tuesday. This is another in a lengthy line of setbacks for Rose, who had just returned from a groin injury that had kept him out since mid-March. Rose has also battled back spasms and a toe injury this season.
The Bulls host the Knicks Tuesday night looking to avenge their loss to New York on Sunday.
