Derrick Rose is day-to-day after spraining his right ankle in the second quarter of the Wolves’ victory over the Clippers on Tuesday night.

Here’s the play where it happened:

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose still has a lot of soreness in his ankle and didn’t practice Wednesday.

Before his injury, Rose looked good for the Wolves, bringing intensity off the bench and producing a few highlight plays like this one:  

His handle and scoring ability give the Wolves another threat in the pick and roll, and his physicality on defense allows Minnesota to play him as a small-ball three with the second unit.

Hopefully his injury isn’t too serious, and Wolves fans will see him back on the court sooner rather than later.
