Derrick Rose's Ankle, Are You Injured Or Not? Mixed Signals!

Hello, Derrick Rose's injured ankle. We've heard a lot of things about you lately. Your Derrick Rose said you're fine after your Game 1 injury, as did an X-ray machine. Reports even had you practicing without swelling on Tuesday.

Now here comes this other report by CSN Chicago's David Kaplan. He says you have a Grade 2 sprain, underwent a MRI and that you're really going to get in your Derrick Rose's way during Wednesday's Game 2. Mr. Kaplan is very insistent about all this, calling his sources "excellent."

It's hard to know what to make of all this, Derrick Rose's ankle. We hope you're all right, but also wish we knew whether you're OK or not. We'll find out Wednesday night, I suppose.

PS: Derrick Rose is probably hurt, almost certainly going to play as normal and definitely going to be a challenge for Atlanta.
