Derrick Rose sprains ankle after hard foul from Greg Monroe


It won't help Derrick Rose heal any faster, but the Cleveland Cavaliers guard got his wish Saturday when the National Basketball Association upgraded the call against Bucks center Greg Monroe to a Flagrant 1. "That's why you have veteran guys come in to be ready to play".

The officiating crew reviewed the play and let the common-foul call stand, telling the Cavs' coaching staff that Monroe didn't foul Rose with any sort of intent.

Rose's injury was ruled "just a sprain" by the team, but there is no timetable set for his return at this point.

"I ain't got calls in the last seven years, so I definitely understand what he's talking about", Wade said, again per ESPN. From what we're told, as players, if they go around the neck it's automatic. Magic coach Frank Vogel said an MRI exam showed Payton sustained a "mild to moderate" hamstring strain Friday against Brooklyn and would miss some games.

He was a flawless 6-for-6 from the free-throw stripe, adding two rebounds and two steals across 23 minutes. But he's going to keep attacking the rim.

During the fourth quarter, on a drive to the basket, watch as Rose elevates and then gets fouled hard by Milwaukee Bucks big man Greg Monroe.

Rose, who suffered a sprained left ankle on an awkward fall from the hit, is not expected to play in the Cavaliers' game Saturday against Orlando.
