    Derrick Rose was nominated as Chicago's "Sexiest Athlete."

    Bulls’ star Derrick Rose might be missing in action, but he’s still one of Chicago's sexiest athletes.

    The 21-year-old guard's nomination in the “What’s Sexy Now Chicago Athlete” competition will be announced tomorrow by Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller.

    The event will be held at the Bulls’ training facility at the Berto Center, and is part of a marketing campaign promoting the lingerie chain’s new downtown Chicago store.

    Other sports celebrities nominated for the award include Bears’ linebacker Brian Urlacher and Blackhawks’ star Patrick Kane.

    Since injuring himself this summer, Rose has been sidelined for almost three weeks. He has been on a day-to-day diagnosis ever since and his presence for the Oct. 29 opening game against the San Antonio Spurs remains uncertain.
