While talk of Derrick Rose and what he means to the Bulls is bandied about in the media, Rose's teammates know and had that reinforced on Monday.
The reigning NBA MVP visited his teammates at the Berto Center two days after suffering a playoffs-ending left ACL injury in Game 1 on Saturday afternoon. He was said to be in "pretty good spirits" by Kyle Korver.
Coach Tom Thibodeau didn't know if Rose would be with the team for Game 2 on Tuesday night, but he didn't rule it out either.
"We want him around ... I don't think he'll be able to travel with us, but he'll be around," Thibodeau said. "And he wants to be around. He's excited to get around his teammates."
