|Rose, Deng Banged up for Game Five Against Cavaliers
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago's Derrick Rose missed practiced Monday to have an MRI performed on his right ankle and Luol Deng sat out with a sore knee.
The results of the MRI were not immediately released by the Bulls. Both Rose and Deng are expected to play in Cleveland on Tuesday night when the Cavaliers try to wrap up the playoff series they lead 3-1.
Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro says Rose was limping and sore. The ankle has bothered the point guard since preseason.
Del Negro says Deng is suffering from a sore knee and calf. He says he think both will be ready to play and the Bulls need them to play "at a high level."
