When will Derrick Rose return to action? Full Court Press looks at the latest developments - 2/12
We really try to take each step. You know in the process step by step and so it's not that were being invasive anyway as far as when he's coming back. You know we didn't wanna jump ahead to the next step toll he clears each hurdle and he's been on the -- now is taking contact he sees a part of practice. And it's been encouraging I mean he's. He's in great shape. And you know I think he's responded well up to this point you know with where he's at and and you know we're just looking for the next couple weeks of just continuing to monitor worries that. And then what helped make a decision you don't want to take that next step. OK so based on those comments from Rosen -- -- it sounds like the return of might not happen until sometime in March there's no reason to Russia to 44 year old franchise player. The Dutch league at some point he needs to get over that psychological hurdle of will the knee hold up on -- planning game's most. Definitely he definitely needs to come back this season to get over the psychological hump but I think that he -- Mon chauffeur Ricky Rubio those guys came back. Before -- they sustain this same injury. And then not play at below they did freak injury. Derrick Rose does not want to fall into that category -- former MVP he's one of the best players in the NBA -- He wants the guitar at that level that's why you heard him say I wanna come back and I'm 110%. I don't wanna come back. Any less demo form itself. There's no question he's pushing himself through the rehab process our Bulls insider from CSN Chicago dot com had resendiz with the team each and every day. So I asked that great when let me see Derek play again. Obviously -- making progress steady progress with his rehab efforts and everything. You know the media we only get to see him at the very end when he soothing -- -- -- the other day he was actually doing more explosive move stressed the basket but that doesn't really give me any feel of when he'll be back on the court five to make a prediction I'd probably say early to mid march split. As -- is missing those I was going to be when there is comfortable obviously the -- have to clear him in the organization has to give their approval but when Derek feels comfortable I think that's what he's gonna end up being back on the court.
