Derrick Rose's knee problems just won't go away. The Chicago Bulls guard left Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks after playing just 22 minutes because of left patellar tendonitis, and the team went on to lose 106-101. It was the Bulls' third loss in a row.
Rose told reporters that he just wanted to be cautious because he felt discomfort in his knee, via ESPN. He added that he isn't overly concerned and doesn't think he'll need an MRI, per the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson.
It has to be frustrating to continually go through situations like this and know that, every single time, it is going to be a story. That is the reality for Rose, though, and you can't blame Chicago fans for getting scared whenever something happens with his knee.
The Bulls' next game is in Philadelphia on Thursday. Rose said he doesn't want to miss the game, per CSN's Vincent Goodwill, but the team should handle this carefully.
Rose finished with nine points on 3-for-9 shooting against the Bucks, with three assists, one rebound and one steal.
