Injury updates: Rose starts vs. Rockets

CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose suffered a bruised right hip during Saturday's win over the Boston Celtics but went through Monday's shootaround and was in the starting lineup for Monday night's game against the Houston Rockets.

Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler is back with the team after missing Saturday's game while on bereavement leave and also started.

Meanwhile, Bulls small forward Mike Dunleavy will not play against the Rockets. He suffered a right ankle injury during a Jan. 1 win over the Denver Nuggets and did not play against the Celtics. The good news for the Bulls is that Dunleavy is no longer wearing a walking boot.

"It's getting better," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said.
