CHICAGO (AP) -Derrick Rose, the former Memphis star selected first overall in the NBA draft, left the Chicago Bulls' exhibition finale against Milwaukee because of a hip injury Friday night.
Rose sustained a right hip flexor injury midway through the first quarter. He left the United Center court and did not return to action.
The guard was on the bench in the second half, but further reports on the extent of his injury were not immediately available.
The Bulls' No. 2 leading scorer in seven exhibition games with a 14.9 average, Rose started his sixth game for Chicago and scored seven points before leaving with 6:41 left in the first quarter.
Guard Kirk Hinrich replaced Rose and scored 11 points through the balance of the quarter as Chicago jumped to a 35-16 lead.
Three other Chicago players were out with injuries Friday, including leading scorer Ben Gordon (jammed left big toe), guard Larry Hughes (dislocated shoulder) and forward Luol Deng (sore right toe). Forward Tyrus Thomas (sore right ankle) played Friday.
