Derrick Rose day to day

Derrick Rose underwent treatment on his sore right hamstring Tuesday, an injury that didn't require an MRI and which the Bulls said leaves their franchise player day to day.
Rose is trying to take advantage of an advantageous situation — a three-day break between games. Late Monday, Rose vowed to play Friday in Toronto. But given how conservatively the Bulls treated injuries during the preseason, it wouldn't be surprising to see Rose sit until Saturday's home game against the Central Division-rival Pacers.
Of greater concern than Rose's injury, which he suffered on a drive late in Monday's victory over the Cavaliers, is Rose struggling to finish at the rim and get to the foul line consistently. He has attempted just 20 free throws in six games and had none against the Cavs despite repeatedly attacking the basket.
"He's not quite finishing his plays off, which he normally does," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I'd like to see him get to the line a little bit. But he has to keep working at it."
