RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Derrick Rose missed the first NBA game played in South America on Saturday, sitting out the Chicago Bulls 83-81 victory over the Washington Wizards with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee. The NBA stars absence disappointed a sellout crowd of 13,635 at the HSBC Arena in Rio -- the gymnastics venue at the 2016 Olympics -- where the top ticket price for the preseason game was 2,000 Brazilian reals ($915). Taj Gibson led the Bulls with 18 points and Luol Deng added 14. Bradley Beal paced Washington with 16. Rose had played two preseason games without any sign of problems, but Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said the knee flared up in practice Friday and Rose ended his work about halfway through the session. "We wanted to see where he was today, but he wasnt as well as we would have liked," Thibodeau said. "He still had the soreness. So we anticipated giving him time off. We view our training camp as the entire month. So if he needs a day, or a couple of days well do that." Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in Roses absence and finished with eight points and three assists. "Its more, I think, just a precaution. Hes coming off a really big injury. Were not too worried," Hinrich said. "Hes been good all camp and Im assuming everybody is expecting him to be ready. "Coming back from a big injury like that, you dont want to push it too hard, too fast." Chicaggo led 44-35 at halftime and was in control most of the way until Washington took a 79-77 lead with 5:42 left on Glen Rices 3-pointer. Eden Hazard Jersey. Fans started chanting late in the game "Rose, Rose," hoping to see him take the floor, but Thibodeau plans on playing it safe with his star point guard. "In training camp when guys get sore, you usually rest them," he said. "You are always concerned with injuries or soreness. We knew coming into the season hes coming off a major injury." Rose hoped to be ready for the Bulls next game, at home Wednesday against the Pistons. "I know that I should be ready to go next game," he said. Chicagos Joakim Noah also missed the game, sitting out with a groin injury. "Over the course of a season you are always going to have different issues in terms of health," Thibodeau said. "So we expect when someone is out, the next man will step up and get the job done. We had a lot of guys do that last year and we expect the same next year." Brazilian great Oscar Schmidt got a rousing welcome from the fans, but Wizards centre Nene, who grew up near Sao Paulo, was jeered as he took the floor. And he was jeered each time he went to the free-throw line. Many Brazil fans are unhappy because Nene seldom plays for the national team, and Schmidt has criticized him for not doing so. Chicago is 3-0 in the preseason and Washington is 0-2.
