CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose sprained his left ankle sprain in Friday night's 114-108 overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The injury occurred in the second quarter with about four minutes remaining after Rose came down awkwardly. He initially hobbled towards the Bulls' bench but shook it off and stayed in the game.

Rose scored 18 points in the first half and returned to the game in the third quarter but was largely ineffective scoring just two points in nine minutes. Rose left the Bulls' bench midway through the fourth quarter and has not returned.

Rose finished with 20 points, four rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes of action.
