    CLEVELAND — Cavaliers point guard Derrick Rose was held out of Saturday night's game against the Orlando Magic because of a sprained left ankle.

    Rose twisted his ankle after being fouled by Milwaukee's Greg Monroe while driving to the basket in the fourth quarter on Friday. Monroe grabbed Rose by his neck and pulled him to the floor.

    Rose landed awkwardly, but stayed in the game to shoot two free throws before going to the bench. The play was originally called a common foul but was upgraded to a flagrant 1 on Saturday (Sunday, Manila time) by the NBA.

    Jose Calderon started at point guard Saturday for the Cavaliers, who have won their first two games.
