Derrick Rose is sitting on the sidelines again Monday
when reporters were granted access to Bulls practice at O2 Arena.
Reporters will be able to ask questions at about 6 AM Chicago time, but
it appears Rose's Achilles injury is still bothering him.
This doesn't strike me as anything to worry about for Rose, but it will surely disappoint British fans if he's unable to go. Not that this should be a factor at all in whether he plays or not. It clearly shouldn't be.
In the preseason there's no reason to ever play a guy who's banged up even a little or has anything tweaked at all. We can discuss missed practices or games, but in reality we all know these games are meaningless and should be treated accordingly. Not that I'm telling Bulls management something they don't already know there.
