Derrick Rose has been upgraded to questionable ahead of the Bulls’ matchup with the Bucks at 8:00PM ET on Tuesday.
Rose reportedly looked good in a shootaround on Tuesday and although he’ll be a game-time decision due to his hamstring injury, there is some optimism that the guard will be in the starting lineup. Fred Hoiberg noted that Rose, “feels really good” and that signs are pointing to the 27-year-old suiting up tonight.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Bulls are now 8.5-point favorites over the Bucks after the number opened at Chicago -7.5. The total has also jumped with Rose’s status improving, going from 198.5 up to 202.
