Derrick Rose Sits Out Preseason Game With Knee Soreness, Says ‘It’s Nothing Huge’

Derrick Rose sat out the Bulls preseason game in Brazil on Saturday evening with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee.  The soreness began during practice on Friday and while this news instantly sparks some worry, Rose says, “it’s nothing huge” and he “should be able to go next game.”

According to KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:

The Bulls held Rose out of their 83-81 exhibition victory over the Wizards at HSBC Arena on Saturday with left knee soreness that team officials termed “minor.”

[...]“I’m good,” Rose said. “I could’ve played, but the front office made the decision to sit me out. I can’t complain about it. It’s nothing huge. I know that I should be able to go next game.”
