Wed, 6 Mar 2013|
Kendall Gill and Mark Schanowski break down the upgrade in Derrick Rose's status to day-to-day and what it means for the superstar and the Bulls - 3/6
The Bulls still waiting for the return of their all star point guard Derrick Rose sat on the bench and his teammates in the very first time during some nights game against Indiana. -- him and Sosa Derek is now in day to day mode. Nothing definitive when you hear from -- it sounds like Derrick is getting close. Stated that that is when whenever he's ready to read. -- we just want to continue to improve. Focus on three. And then when he's ready to go walled off to remain patient. -- obviously we look at the numbers handled pujols can use Derrick Rose back there often sputtered a bit since February. And I think with Kirk Hinrich having issues even a Robinson's nicked up right now there's some urgency to get Derek back out there there is no is not -- isn't on the. Bulls fared so well urgency on the whole NBA golf studio. Chicago everybody's season here. Working out he looks healthy and that you know you listen to the radio shows and all the news guest. -- saying that paid -- this is -- -- with him he's not gonna come back until he's ready I agree with Derek but also I believe he should come back sooner rather than later because the Bulls need him at this point. That question been asked over and over then nationally and locally when is there are gonna come back so we asked our Bulls insider -- Sam. Of all the questions about roles return we're starting to Wear on his teammates. Not that much and so you know they think about it obviously this is their teammate he's in the five on five -- so. Know they see him on the court -- more and they see that he's getting back to where he was but when the -- stars and these guys know they played most of last season without their two people to remember that -- half of the season without him so. Right now I think that's a combination of the physically some guys -- banged up and ineffective curt maverick is on the court is a big deal to. -- I'll believe that great scored the fifth in his career he really is a floors in the of the organizers office and I know Nate Robinson played the season -- -- but -- not a -- point it's point point guard and guys aren't quite in the as in Paul offensively decide the future. Off right now so I think that's probably bigger reason and -- being out the last. Kelly Johnson Derrick Rose situation you have to read between the lines earlier this season top of the so when you see Derek on the bench from his teammates during game. You'll know it's close and then after the game Sunday -- don't read too much did that help out where -- stand little I'm. Bill was the first statement. Hey he is close when you feel for the first time himself a bit. Since his injury that -- did he is almost ready to play you know let's go back to what I know how it wears on teams okay when you lose to an Indiana. -- -- know they have you have dinner rolls you can probably beat this team. That's when it wears on her teammates -- like look there we need you back -- so that we can send these teams messages because of their roles have been playing in the game against Indiana places they would want. And there's just over twenty games left in the regular season so it's important for -- back to give his teammates a boost -- playing shorthanded all year long because of injuries. But he also needs the work off some of the rust if you hope to make some got a run in the playoffs. You gotta get your timing back you have to get your timing back in that. Going to come somewhat in practice what you really need. Minutes in games in order to get that timing back. Because you're going against guys that are really going head to 100% sometimes the guys in practice aren't really going that you wanted to say that's why you need those repetitions and game tape. He's gonna have a time limit on him when he does come back so he needs to get back. As soon as possible mark. Course the ultimate question is how good can the Bulls -- even if they get Derrick Rose back in the lineup before the playoffs. Former Bulls guard Steve Kerr was now an NBA analyst with TNT since it's hard to envision the Bulls having much of a chance against Miami in a best of seven series. I think they can win a couple of rounds but they're not beating Miami four times though whether Derrick is there or not to you know Bob I think back to a Michael Jordan came back to our Bulls team. When he was playing baseball. He came back with -- about seventeen games left that wasn't enough time for for us suited to blend together. So even though you know if these guys know Derek and they've played with -- I don't think he'd just thrown into the mix and all of a sudden expect them to to beat Miami so. I just I don't see it that's why I really think it's important to be patient my guess that it just continue on the path. That they -- on right now it's.
