Rose back in Bulls lineup

Star point guard Derrick Rose is back in the Chicago Bulls’ lineup for Thursday’s game against the Miami Heat after missing a game because of a sprained right ankle.

Rose was injured in the first half Sunday in an overtime loss at New York, when he returned after missing 12 games because of a groin problem. He stayed in that game but sat out Tuesday’s win at home over the Knicks.

The Bulls were leading the second-place Heat by three games in the Eastern Conference heading into Thursday’s game.
