The Knicks are hopeful Derrick Rose (back) can go for Tuesday’s game vs. the Pacers.
He tried to return last week but it was too early and Rose ended up tweaking his back again. He did say he was feeling better on Sunday but regardless the Knicks will likely watch over him carefully given his injury history. To the surprise of many, the Knicks actually look better with DRose out there on the floor and is hoping to get him back for Tuesday. Until then, Brandon Jennings will run the show.
Update: Rose went through a full practice with no back issues and seems like he’ll be able to go tomorrow against the Pacers.
Update II: Rose is expected to play.
