-- Derrick Rose left the Cleveland Cavaliers' 116-97 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday with a sprained left ankle stemming from a hit by Bucks center Greg Monroe that the former MVP said should have been called a flagrant foul.

"I think I'm the only person in the league that's not getting a flagrant for that call, bro," Rose said after scoring 12 points in 23 minutes before exiting the game for good with 10:12 remaining in the fourth quarter. "Come on, man. Like, I'm sure I'm the only player, but it is what it is. ... That's a common foul. Wow. Come on."

Rose attempted a reverse layup early in the fourth quarter that Monroe contested, catching Rose around the neck and head with his left arm while the Cavs guard was airborne. When Rose went to the ground, his left ankle turned inward, causing the sprain.
