Derrick Rose Injury: Bulls PG Is Game-Time Decision For Thursday's Miami Game

The Chicago Bulls have already proven that they can beat the Miami Heat without starting point guard Derrick Rose in the lineup, but they may have to do it again as their star player continues to be plagued by injuries. According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, Rose practiced on Wednesday as the swelling in his ankle went away, but he's still a game-time decision for Thursday's game between the Bulls and Heat.

Rose has dealt with a variety of injuries all year, causing him to miss over 20 games in the abbreviated 2011-2012 season. The Bulls have had great success even without their star player, including an impressive victory over Miami last month, but they'll be pressed to maintain that success down the stretch as the playoffs near.
