Derrick Rose is dealing with a sore neck but the Bulls point guard doesn’t expect it to sideline him for Thursday’s home opener against the New York Knicks.

Rose is under the assumption he tweaked his neck at some point during Chicago’s regular season opener in Miami on Tuesday, though he doesn’t know exactly when it happened.

“I don’t know …

Much changes quickly in sports, and so it is for the Bulls who a few days ago were having visions of championships as they headed for Miami to open the season against the two-time defending champions.

So Thursday as the Bulls prepare to play their home opener against the Knicks, also on national TNT, the issue is whether the Bulls …

He’s back?

Derrick Rose Tuesday in his first official NBA game in 18 months since reconstructive knee surgery shot four of 15 with one of seven on threes, added four assists but five turnovers in a 107-95 loss to the Miami Heat in which the Bulls trailed by 25 points in the fourth quarter.

It was like the Finals Tuesday before the beginning, the first game day shootaround before the first game of the 2013-14 NBA season.

The TV networks, TNT and ESPN, were there with cameras rolling as the Bulls prepared to play the Miami Heat in Miami’s first game since winning the championship in the same arena five months ago. The commissioner’s …

1. Oct. 29: Heat in Miami. It doesn’t get much hotter. For a ticket, anyway. Perhaps the most anticipated game of the 2013-14 season.

The Bulls aren’t certain what they’ll be doing when the Miami Heat receive their championship rings and raise their 2013 title banner before Tuesday’s NBA season opener between the Bulls and Heat.

Though it would be hardly surprising if there’s some Black Eyed Peas lyrics making the rounds:

The Bulls finished the NBA preseason the only undefeated team, leading everyone in point differential and one of two teams yielding fewer than 90 points per game. The Bulls were leading in field goal defense and in the top three in rebounding.

Of course, the statistics don’t count. But they suggest a Bulls team as prepared as any for the …

Time to start over now, Derrick Rose was saying after the Bulls Friday completed an 8-0 preseason with a 94-89 come from behind victory over the Denver Nuggets.

“If anything, we accomplished what we wanted to accomplish, which was to go out there and try to win every game,” said Rose, who added 15 points and eight assists to finish …

One of the most popular players in Bulls history returned Friday in the final preseason game. He didn’t start much for the Bulls and his name won’t appear on any banners.

But the United Center audience greeted Nate Robinson warmly when he entered the game to open the second quarter.

“This is something special to me just because of the …

The Bulls preseason, really, their whole season, was to be the story of Derrick Rose’s return from knee surgery and his subsequent play.

That, remarkably, has become something of an ancillary concern with the team’s 104-95 victory Wednesday over the Thunder in Wichita, Kansas and another superlative Rose game. Rose scored 26 points including 13 in the fourth quarter with …
