Bulls general manager Gar Forman sits down with CSN's Mark Schanowski to discuss Derrick Rose's possible return - 2/14
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 floor now is taking contact he's he's a part of practice. And it's been encouraging I -- 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 forward the next couple weeks of just continuing to monitor worries that. In -- -- helped make a decision you know when to take that next step. What is the final hurdles -- need to go through a couple of weeks of five on five. Scrimmage being at practice or is or is -- files that while normally you know there it's a combination of things first of all you know where he feels he's out or our doctors and trainers feel that he's at where we feel. He's -- and I think we were all comfortable. That you know he's back to a 100% him and ready to play. There won't make that decision you know -- to have him back on the -- but up to this point. You know each each step along the way. He's he's made progress and he's right really right where it should be what do you anticipate probably you think is going to be inactive character. You know why you have talked a lot of different GMs around the league and in the field and I get. Is that it's not going to be but. You know there's been years before where I've said that in all of a sudden there's all kinds activity on the last night but I do think were in a new collective bargaining agreement now. I think that's gonna have some effect on on what teams do around the league I think. The new tax and repeater tax and more punitive tax is gonna have a effect on what kind of movement we see within the week. In my Achilles tears are gonna be a little hesitant to take on long term money. I'm sure we'll see some movement I don't I guess my opinion is what we -- awful lot.
