Rose is Late Scratch for Skills Challenge

Remember a few nights ago when the Bulls were absolutely destroyed by the Orlando Magic? Remember how Derrick Rose collided with Dwight Howard and sustained some inevitable damage at the hands of a smaller object hitting a larger object? Well, according to numerous sources* on Twitter, Chicago's son, Derrick "I pwned the Skills Challenge last year" Rose, will be sitting the event out this evening thanks to a bruised hip. In lieu of Rose, NBA fans will be thrilled/entertained/hypnotized by the amazing and awesome Russell Westbrook. This writer's best guess as to Rose and the rest of the ASGWknd? Rose plays spare minutes in the All-Star Game tomorrow night, sits rest of the game and jokes with teammate Taj Gibson about VDN's hair...yeah, hair jokes, that's the ticket!
