Derrick Rose sidelined with sore knee

Geez this is nuts. The first 2 draft picks are already injured. One in a practise, and the other in a Summer League game.

Rose left the Bulls' victory over Indiana on Tuesday with 7:58 remaining after he ''jammed'' his knee.

''It's fine,'' Rose said after the Pacers game. ''When I made my last layup, I jump-stopped a little bit and I landed a little hard. But I should be all right. I would like to play all the games. They'd have to sit me out.''

The injury isn't considered serious, but Bulls officials wanted to take a conservative approach. JamesOn Curry started in Rose's place Wednesday. Rose might play today against New Jersey.
