Rose missed Friday's game against the Denver Nuggets with a strained neck.
"It's a little sore but I'm willing to play through it," Rose said before Saturday's contest.
Rose started to experience discomfort in his neck after Wednesday night's double-overtime win over the Phoenix Suns. He underwent treatments on the injury on the team's flight to Sacramento. He'll be treated again before Saturday's game.
"[I feel] a lot better," Rose said. "Throughout the whole game [Friday] I was getting a massage in the back [of the locker room] ... [the neck] feels decent. We'll have to see. I still have problems turning fast certain ways but I think when I'm playing I shouldn't be thinking about it."
Rose, the league's third-leading scorer, isn't sure if the injury will limit his minutes Saturday night.
