Irving won’t play against Rose, Bulls tonight
Kyrie Irving’s introduction to Derrick Rose will have to wait — again. Rose did not play when the Bulls clobbered the Cavs on Jan. 20. Irving will miss Friday night’s game because of illness.
Still, Rose is impressed with the rookie who is averaging 18.5 points and 5.1 assists per game.
“He’s a good player playing great,” Rose said. “He can really shoot the ball and be a finisher.”
