Rose left Monday's 96-81 victory over Cleveland with 3:15 remaining. He injured the hamstring on a drive to the basket, then said in the locker room it was "nothing big at all."

The Bulls did not practice Tuesday and don't play again until Friday at Toronto. That's also the first leg of the Bulls' first set of back-to-back games this season. They host Indiana on Saturday.

Until Rose gets back on the court, the Twitter skeptics are likely to continue the gloomy reaction to this news.

"I feel bad for him," teammate Carlos Boozer said. "He works his butt off every day, whether it's rehab, lifting, shooting, whatever it is. He puts the time in, so I feel bad for him.

"Our whole thing is the long run of the season. Right now, what are we in, Week 2? Hopefully, it's not that serious. He had the tough year last year, a lot of pressure on him. You guys are all over him this year. Give the kid a break. He does a lot of stuff that's great for us. As teammates, we have his back and support him every day. Hopefully it's not that bad an injury."
