The Bulls decided Derrick Rose’s sore right knee was reason enough to keep the rookie out of the lineup for the third summer league game in Orlando.
Rose left the win over Indiana Tuesday with 7:58 remaining after he “jammed” his knee.
“It’s fine,” Rose said after that game. “When I made my last layup, I jump-stopped a little bit and I landed a little hard. But I should be all right. I would like to play all the games. They’d have to sit me out.”
The injury is not considered serious. But Bulls officials wanted to take a conservative approach, so he sat out against the host Orlando Magic. Rose may play Thursday. JamesOn Curry started for Rose Wednesday.
