Rose to sit out vs. Cavaliers
Forward Luol Deng, who has missed the past four games with a strained calf muscle, is expected to miss two to three weeks.
"Luol's going to be out a while," Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. "He tried to warm up a little bit against Dallas. He was feeling better every day. He thought he was getting close, and then he started doing some straight ahead jogging and it really swelled up on him ... He's got more inflammation now than he did before, so that's a setback. He's definitely going to be out for a little bit."

The Bulls are trying to avoid extending their losing streak to 10.
"I've got to see that he says, 'Coach, I can go;' 'Coach, I feel good enough to go,' " coach Vinny Del Negro said. "Or, 'It's still bothering me.'
"The doctor will be there to evaluate, and then we'll make, hopefully, a smart decision and see how he feels. Obviously, all the guys want to go. But injuries are part of it. You've got to work through them."
Rose injured the wrist March 11 in Orlando, when Magic center Dwight Howard knocked him to the court.
