Some bad news in the midst of a pretty fun second half of basketball:
Derrick Rose has backs spasms and will not return.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) December 7, 2016
He left at the 6 minute mark of the third quarter.
Derrick Rose’s play has seriously picked up of late, but he wasn’t performing particularly well tonight (10 points on 4/12 shooting and only 3 assists in 24 minutes). Back spams could certainly have contributed to that, especially for someone who plays the way Rose does.
Get well Derrick - we need you tomorrow night!
