NOTES: Chicago star Derrick Rose is off crutches and could start traveling with the team in the coming weeks. The 2011 NBA MVP tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. He sat out last season while recovering from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. ... Chicago's Nazr Mohammed sprained his left middle finger in the first half, but Thibodeau didn't think it was broken. ... The Bulls have won nine of their past 11 home games against Washington.
