Derrick Rose Injury: Chicago Bulls' Star Has Turf Toe, But Will Play Vs. Wizards

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, the league's reigning league MVP, re-aggravated a lingering turf toe injury, but will still play against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, reports Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago.

"I've been having turf toe since my second year," Rose said, dismissing concerns that he might sit out Wednesday. "I will be playing."

Rose has scored 21 points or more in each of his last seven games against the Wizards, a streak that began on Jan. 15, 2010, when he scored 37 in an overtime victory. Chicago is 6-1 in those contests. In the 2011/12 season, the Memphis product is averaging 20.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and a career-best 8.6 assists per game.

The Bulls, at 9-2, are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the NBA's best record.
