Derrick Rose injury not serious

Derrick Rose sat out the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ 117-99 preseason win over the Wizards on Saturday night with a sore ankle, but the backup point guard said it’s not serious and perhaps was due to the tough training camp head coach Tom Thibodeau has run. Throughout the fourth quarter, Rose flexed his foot and talked to trainers, before leaving for the locker room with one minute remaining.

“Just needed a day,’’ Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said after surviving the Spurs, 102-98, at the Garden. “We knew we were getting a couple of guys [Immanuel Quickley, Alec Burks] back so we thought it would be good to give him the rest.’’ Rose, 32, could’ve played, though Thibodeau admitted Rose hurt himself Tuesday against the Lakers when he logged a season high 39 minutes. “He tweaked it in the Laker game,’’ Thibodeau said. “He did some stuff pregame. And we just felt it was better not to play him today and see where he is [Friday].’’

The Minnesota Timberwolves are not officially out of the playoff chase, but to reach that difficult goal, they’ll have to do so with a decidedly shorthanded roster. The team announced today that forward Robert Covington and guards Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague are all expected to miss the rest of the season due to injury. Rose and Teague had missed the last four games with injury, with Rose suffering with soreness and swelling in his right elbow while Teague had re-aggravated a left foot injury originally suffered in December.

Mark Cuban is working on a program that would offer Mavericks fans a $50 credit each month of the season toward DirecTV Stream to reduce the cost of the only streaming platform that offers Bally Sports Southwest, he told The Dallas Morning News. The Mavericks’ owner is still working on details, but he said the franchise would first offer season-ticket holders the opportunity and then expand sign-ups to the first 10,000 fans total.
