DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Injured Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose says he will not suit up against Miami on Wednesday and sounds like a player who just might miss the entire season.
Rose squashed rumors that he might make his long anticipated return from surgery on his left knee against LeBron James and the Heat with two words at the morning shootaround: ``Not tonight.'' The comments came in the wake of a Twitter post by rapper Waka Flocka Flame, who wrote, ``Word is D.Rose back.''
Rose and the rapper are fans of each other, but the former MVP said he's not sure when he'll be back. He said his return is ``in God's hands.''
The Heat are on a 27-game win streak, trailing only the 33 straight by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1971-72.
