As Rose continues to progress, sneaker campaign concludes

In addition to his recovery from ACL surgery, Bulls superstar Derrick Rose has also been keeping busy with his new sneaker collection, the adidas D Rose 3 signature shoe.

The final edition of the Chicago's native's latest line, called "Nightmare," has a limited release, is available to consumers on Christmas Eve and has a purple colorway and other features, such as a glow-in-the-dark outsole and the shoe's release date inscribed on the tongue.

Clearly, however, Rose has other priorities at the moment. The 24-year-old point guard was seen after Monday's Bulls practice at the United Center going through a battery of shooting drills and while he didn't display much lift, it's an encouraging sign for fans.

A person familiar with the situation told CSNChicago.com that while Rose isn't taking contact or doing intense drill work, he has progressed to the point that he is able to go run through the team's offensive sets with the "early group" before practices.

While this might suggest that Rose's return is imminent, his timetable to even return to practice remains up in the air, as the most optimistic guesses hint that he could play approximately the final 30 games of the regular season -- meaning he'd be back prior to the All-Star break, after which most predictions have slated him to return -- but others still believe he could sit out the entire campaign, depending on the state of the Bulls upon his readiness to play.

Nobody but Rose knows exactly how his body is feeling and although his famed drive and determination could have him yearning to play again within the next month or two, the Bulls' medical staff and management team will have to concur.

White Sox add Tyler Danish for doubleheader, place Dylan Covey on DL

White Sox add Tyler Danish for doubleheader, place Dylan Covey on DL

The White Sox announced they have added pitcher Tyler Danish from Triple-A Charlotte as the 26th player for Friday's doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers.

In a series of roster moves, the White Sox also recalled relief pitcher Juan Minaya from Charlotte and placed starting pitcher Dylan Covey on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

The 23-year-old Danish will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader. In eight starts with the Knights this season, Danish has a 1-3 record with a 3.15 ERA.

[WHITE SOX TICKETS: Get your seats right here]

In 10 appearances with the Knights, Minaya has a 1-0 record with a 1.23 ERA. 

Covey is 0-4 with an 8.12 ERA in eight starts with the White Sox in 2017. Covey left last Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks after just 2.1 innings pitched with oblique soreness.

The White Sox and Tigers get underway from Guaranteed Rate Field at 3:30 p.m. on CSN and streaming live on CSNChicago.com and the NBC Sports App.

Biggest storyline: Can the Rebels win a third straight conference title and return to the playoffs?

Names to watch this season: Senior WR Marco Vitale, Senior OL/DL Jose Bodon

Biggest holes to fill: The Rebels will need to find a new quarterback to lead the passing attack with the graduation of Richie Zacharius.

EDGY's early take: The Rebels bring back a good core of starters from last season, including seven on defense. Look for Ridgewood to again be a factor in the Metro Suburban Conference and beyond this season.
