Derrick Rose had a pretty solid comeback when he played against the Indiana Pacers last week. In his first game in 18 months, Rose put up 13 points (5-for-12), three assists, two steals, and two rebounds. There's also the fact that he's coming from a torn ACL, which can potentially lead to some long term consequences.
Rose is sitting out the Bulls' next preseason game in Brazil because of soreness in his left knee (the same one he tore his ACL in). The move does make sense because this is the not-that-important preseason. Joakim Noah is also sitting out this game—as well as the early preseason games—with a groin injury.
The team says it's strictly a precautionary measure, but it's understandable if some fans are a bit worried upon hearing the news.
