It was reported earlier that Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose was going to attempt to play against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, despite dealing with a case of turf toe. Derrick Rose will likely miss the matchup with the Wizards however, according to a recent report by K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

To replace Rose, the Bulls have signed veteran guard Mike James. James had played just two games in the D-League before being called up and spent the last two seasons playing in China and Turkey.
