This has to be difficult on Bulls fans. Before and after Game 2 of the Heat vs. Bulls series a bunch of unconfirmed reports surfaced that Rose would be making his triumphant return to the Bulls in Game 3 of the series.
There reports were very vague, they went from, he would definitely play to he would wear his uniform, but just sit on the bench (which made absolutely no sense).
I had a feeling that some in the media were grasping at straws or were giving bad information by their “sources” and that appears to be the case.
BREAKING: Derrick Rose is out for Game 3 tonight. Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich are also both out.
