Rose Ready for Game Five Against Cavaliers
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose says his injured right ankle has improved and he will play in Game 5 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rose jammed his ankle in the first half of Game 4 on Sunday. He said following Tuesday's shootaround that rest, treatment and medication has worked and that his ankle feels "fine." Rose, who underwent a precautionary MRI, said he'll wear a brace as the Bulls, trailing 3-1 in the series, try to fight off elimination.

Bulls forward Luol Deng will also play Tuesday night despite a sore knee and calf.

Rose said he slept with an immobilizing cast on his ankle. He's averaged 25.8 points in the first four games of the first-round series. Deng is averaging 17 points and 4.8 rebounds.
