Bulls' Rose Misses 12th Straight Game
CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose missed the Chicago Bulls' game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday night due a strained groin, the 12th consecutive contest he's missed because of the injury.

Chicago has been without Rose for 22 games this season. The Bulls (42-13) are 7-4 during the latest stretch, losing the last two for their first two-game skid of the season.

Rose, who was a game-time decision, practiced Wednesday. He took contact for the first time since the injury and afterwards was optimistic he will be able to play against the New York Knicks on Sunday.

Rose last played March 12 in a win against the Knicks.

C.J. Watson will start at point guard in place of Rose.
