Derrick Rose who’s been on the road to recovery for nearly 8 months after tearing his ACL in the playoffs, could return to practice sooner than we expect. Over the last two weeks, the Bulls superstar PG has partaken in cuts and running sprints steadily rebuilding his speed as he could be ready for full contact practice in a few weeks from now.
Bulls GM Gar Forman has been every careful with his most prized possession on the team as he’s still nonchalant about “The Return,” but the Bulls players are under the impression their leader is returning this year.
Rose is expected to return to the court in February around the time of the NBA All-Star game. So far this season, the Bulls have managed to remain as the top seed in the Central division at 8-7.
