In this Bulls news bulletin, it's looking more and more likely that Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose will miss a third straight game due to his injured ankles.
Per Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Rose is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons while Jimmy Butler is probable to be in uniform:
Bulls say guard Derrick Rose (both ankle sprains) is questionable vs Pistons on Monday while guard Jimmy Butler (lthumb sprain) is probable.

If Rose misses Monday's game, that will be his third-straight DNP and fifth of the year. Head coach Tom Thibodeau has made it abundantly clear that he's not going out of his way to rest the oft-injured star, so it looks as if Rose's recovery from two ankle sprains might be going slower than previously expected.
Butler, on the other hand, hasn't seemed slowed by his thumb injury early on in the 2014-15 season, so there's no reason to expect that he will be forced out of action come Monday.
