 width=The Chicago Bulls say Derrick Rose is questionable for their game Wednesday at Orlando.

It's the first time the star point guard has been listed as anything but "out" since his latest knee surgery.

Rose had a minor operation Feb. 27 and was expected to miss four to six weeks. A torn meniscus in his right knee sidelined him most of last season. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the 2012 playoff opener.

The Bulls also visit Miami on Thursday, host Philadelphia on Saturday and visit Brooklyn on Monday before finishing the regular season at home against Atlanta on April 15.

>>San Antonio Crushes OKC

While the San Antonio Spurs keep on rolling, the Oklahoma City Thunder may be on their way to an early end to a trying season.

Kawhi Leonard poured in 26 points in just 24 minutes and the Spurs dominated from start-to-finish to deal the reeling Thunder a fourth straight loss, a 113-88 setback that dropped them out of possession of the Western Conference's final playoff seed.

The injury-riddled Thunder, on the other hand, fell a half-game back of New Orleans in the race for the No. 8 seed after the Pelicans defeated Golden State on Tuesday. Oklahoma City has now dropped six of its last seven.

Russell Westbrook finished with 17 points and six steals, but no other Thunder player scored more than 11 points.

Three of the Thunder's final four regular-season games are against sub-.500 teams, Sacramento, Indiana, Minnesota.
