NEW YORK (AP) - Derrick Rose has been excused from the rookie
challenge at All-Star weekend and will be replaced by Golden State's Anthony Morrow.

Rose, last season's Rookie of the Year, was selected as a reserve for the All-Star game and is competing in the skills challenge as the defending champion of the event. Because that would have meant events on three straight nights, the NBA announced Tuesday that the Chicago point guard could skip the rookie game.

Players in their first two seasons selected for the All-Star game are typically required to compete in the game between rookies and sophomores on Friday night of All-Star weekend.

Morrow is averaging 11.5 points.
