Rose's injury sparked a wave of sympathy from his teammates and players around the league. Many Bulls players went to the hospital after the game, with Lucas saying Rose was like a younger brother.
"I just wanted to make sure he was OK spiritually and mentally because it's been tough all year for him battling injuries," Lucas said.
Added Iguodala: "It was really tough seeing him go down." And Collins reached out to the Bulls when he heard the news.
"Everybody on our team, everybody in our organization, is sick to their stomach about what happened to that young guy," Collins said.
