WGN Radio in Chicago is reporting that the Bulls believe that Derrick Rose suffered a torn right ACL in Friday Night's loss to Portland. It was a non-contact injury that occurred in the third quarter when Rose was trying to get back on defense after a Nicolas Batum steal. An MRI is scheduled for Saturday Morning in Los Angeles where the Bulls will be in town to take on the Clippers on Sunday.
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
