</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">"I really don't know," Rose said about playing Sunday. "When I wake up, I usually can tell ... it's just sore and stiff. I don't know what to do. Hopefully it will heal in a matter of time." The league's reigning MVP has missed six games this season, matching his combined total from his first three seasons in the league. C.J. Watson will get another start at PG if Rose isn't ready.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">George Karl reportedly said after Saturday's game that Nene will miss "a few games" with his strained left calf.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">A few missed games wouldn't be too shocking, especially since Nene is already dealing with a nagging heel injury. With luck he won't miss more than one or two games, but even a week off would be worth it if he returns fully healthy.

</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Ginobili's hand is fine and once he gets his legs under him he'll be back to his usual, hyper-efficient ways.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman hopes that Darko Milicic (ankle) will return for Monday's game at Orlando.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Milicic has missed five straight games, and in the meantime Nikola Pekovic may have put a stranglehold on the starting center job. Teams don't usually like players to lose their role due to injury, so it's possible that Darko will resume starting once he's healthy.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Andrea Bargnani (calf) has been training in a pool and may begin on-court workouts this week, but there is still no timetable for his return.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Bargnani isn't expected back before the All-Star break. The Raptors are being very cautious with their franchise player, and rightfully so considering he's already aggravated the injury once. Before going down, he was averaging 23.5 points, 1.4 threes, 6.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 0.7 blocks.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said that Richard Hamilton (groin, leg) is "maybe a week away," but also said that they could hold him out through the All-Star break.</td></tr><tr><td>

</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Chicago is currently on a five-game winning streak and holds the NBA's best record, so they feel no need to rush Hamilton back, which is obviously the right move. Ronnie Brewer will continue to start while Hamilton is out.
