Derrick Rose injury: Bulls star will play vs. Bucks

After missing two games, Rose is back in the Chicago lineup.

Derrick Rose will play for the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks after missing two games with two sprained ankles. Rose sustained the injuries in Chicago's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 31 and sat out for the Bulls in victories against the Minnesota Timberwolves and Orlando Magic.

Rose's health is one of the biggest questions of the NBA season. The 2011 MVP has played only 10 games in each of the last two seasons combined thanks to a torn ACL and a torn meniscus in separate knees. Rose looked terrific in the preseason and was playing well against Cleveland before exiting due to injury, scoring 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting.

The Bulls are in the midst of four games in five nights,a  stretch that started with the victory over the Magic on Tuesday. Chicago is 3-1 this season with their only loss coming to Cleveland on Halloween night.
