SHARE Derrick Rose is out: ‘Just don’t want to take any risks’

After three straight games of breaking opponents’ ankles, Derrick Rose went back to breaking hearts.

The Bulls point guard opted to sit out the Wednesday showdown with All-Star John Wall and the Washington Wizards, insisting that his right hamstring was acting up and “Just don’t want to take any risks.’’

Rose did say that it was his decision, and when asked who he consulted about not playing he said, “Myself.’’

Meanwhile, the Bulls were already playing without Jimmy Butler (left knee) and Nikola Mirotic (surgery), while Pau Gasol said he would give it a go despite dealing with flu-like symptoms for the last 48 hours.
