Bulls Keep Rose Out of Preseason Finale
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls held Derrick Rose out of their preseason finale against the Washington Wizards because of a nagging ankle injury.

The NBA's reigning Rookie of the Year, Rose has an inflamed tendon behind his right ankle. He practiced Thursday and was hoping to play Friday night for the first time since the preseason opener, but the Bulls took a cautious approach. He expects to be ready for the season opener against San Antonio on Thursday.

The Bulls also held out guards Kirk Hinrich (left elbow) and Jannero Pargo (lower back).
