CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls say All-Star point guard Derrick Rose suffered "no significant injury" to his hip or lower back after a hard foul by Orlando's Dwight Howard.
The team said Thursday that X-rays and an MRI revealed no major damage, one day after Rose left the game with a bruised right hip.
Rose will be re-examined by team physician Dr. Brian Cole in Dallas on Saturday. Rose still hopes to defend his Skills Challenge title that night and participate in his first All-Star game on Sunday.
Rose was injured about 2 1/2 minutes into Wednesday's 107-87 loss when he got knocked to the floor by Howard on a driving layup. He clutched his lower back and was slow to get to his feet.
