Rose, who received the NBA's MVP award Tuesday, turned his left ankle just as the Hawks captured a 103-95 victory in Game 1 on Monday. X-rays were negative, and Rose said the ankle felt fine.
"Actually the medicine they gave me [Monday] on it was great," Rose said Tuesday. "I woke up this morning feeling great. Practice, worked out afterwards so I'm great."
Boozer has been dealing with turf toe, suffered during Game 5 of the Bulls' first-round series against the Indiana Pacers. He played in Game 1 against the Hawks, scoring 14 points with eight rebounds.
"Great. Everyone's fine today. Full practice," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday.
