The Chicago Bulls have announced that point guard Derrick Rose suffered a hamstring injury and is currently day-to-day.
Rose grimaced after driving into the lane for a layup in Chicago’s 96-81 victory over Cleveland on Monday night. Coach Tom Thibodeau kept Rose in the game for a short time before replacing him with Kirk Hinrich.
Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP, said after the game, he had suffered a minor injury, but that he should be able to play against the Toronto Raptors Friday night.
The Bulls issued a statement on Tuesday updating Rose’s condition, saying he has a sore hamstring and was day-to-day.
The Bulls will practice Wednesday morning.
