Derrick Rose Injury: Bulls GM Gar Forman Supports Tom Thibodeau's Decision To Leave Rose In Game

After Derrick Rose suffered a devastating knee injury in the late stages of the Bulls' win over Philadelphia on Saturday, many questioned why Rose was even on the court at that point. Tom Thibodeau defended that decision after the game, and Bulls general manager Gar Forman offered his full support to Thibodeau on Sunday.

"There is absolutely no issue there," general manager Gar Forman said Sunday. "It's a playoff game. They had cut a lead down (from 20) to 12. We're going to have our guys on the floor making sure we win the game. Tom is a terrific coach who does a lot of things well. One of the best things he does is pace our team."
