Derrick Rose left Chicago's game against the Nets in the first half with back spasms and did not return.

Part of the reason though might be due to the fact the Bulls were absolutely blasting the Nets at the time Rose left. The Bulls led 35-14 after a quarter and 62-37 at the half. Rose played just 10 minutes and scored four points on 2-3 shooting, zero assists and two turnovers.

Rose has missed a few games this season because of a toe injury, but the back spasms likely won't sideline him for much more than just the second half against New Jersey.
