NEW YORK— Derrick Rose missed the New York Knicks' loss to New Orleans on Monday night (Tuesday Manila time) for reasons that remained unclear.

The Knicks would not comment on Rose's whereabouts or anything else about his absence, though center Joakim Noah said after the game that he had spoken to Rose and his longtime Chicago teammate was OK.

"Obviously, Derrick's one of our better players and when he's not here it's tough, but just happy that everything is OK with him," Noah said.

Noah didn't provide any details of their conversation.

Rose practiced with the team during its morning shootaround and coach Jeff Hornacek gave no indication shortly before the game that the point guard would not be available.
