Rose Expects to Play vs. Pacers After Ankle Sprain
DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose says his sprained left ankle is improving and he expects to play in Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.

Rose was wearing a brace on his ankle as he participated on a limited basis in the morning shootaround. He says the ankle "feels totally different," that it's not as stiff. He says he might not need a painkilling shot after all.

The Bulls lead the Pacers 3-1 and would love to close out the tough first-round series at the United Center. An MVP favorite, Rose was injured in the first quarter of Game 4 and finished with 15 points and 10 assists in an 89-84 loss.
