Bulls' Rose sits again

Chicago point guard Derrick Rose was sidelined Tuesday when the Bulls closed a home-and-home series with the Knicks at the United Center.

Rose tweaked his ankle in Sunday's overtime loss at New York, which marked his return to the lineup after missing the previous 12 games with a groin injury.

The Bulls, who have already clinched a playoff berth, are 15-7 without Rose in the lineup this season and hold a two-game lead over Miami atop the Eastern Conference with nine to play.
