In preparation for the Bulls season-opener against the Miami Heat, Derrick Rose spent time battling sumo wrestlers, playing table tennis and working out for his Adidas promotional tour in Asia this past week.

Rose spent the last six days in China and will wrap up his tour in the Philippines before returning to the United States to get ready for the 2013-14 NBA season.

With the Bulls preseason-opener in Indiana a little bit more than three weeks away, Rose gave an update on his ACL recovery.

"I think I am a 100 percent," Rose said. "I'm doing almost everything. I'm squatting, running, lifting almost every other day, just being back on the court after you have an ACL injury, you're kind of hesitant at first about how you step, what way you should step, learning how to run, accelerate, accelerate while you run and while you're slowing down. For me, I'm reacting right now where all I have to think about is if I have to get to a spot, I'm going to get there no matter what. It kind of feels good having that feeling again."
