Rose, who missed over a year of action thanks to an ACL tear finally got back into the swing of things last month when the season tipped off, but has been plagued with nagging injuries since then. If it wasn’t a problematic hamstring, it was an aching neck. And if it’s not either of those, it’s apparently an old turf toe injury that Rose says is still bothering him.
The Chicago Bulls point guard suffered a toe injury back in 2012 – similar to that of turf toe – and it continues to linger.
Rose says he is still dealing with turf toe. He’s dealt with it twice already in his career and knows exactly what Butler is going through.
Turf toe isn’t the easiest condition to get rid of, though, Rose says he can play through the pain which he’s already shown an ability to do. How effective he’ll be though, is a question mark as Rose has struggled through the first handful of games this season.
