Derrick Rose’s Return Date Still Unclear

With five games left in the regular season, The Chicago Bulls still do not have a definite date as to when guard Derrick Rose will return to the lineup.

Earlier today, coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose has been taking contact in practice over the past week but he would not say when he will return from his latest knee operation.  Thibodeau says Rose has not had any setbacks and his conditioning continues to improve.  He added that Rose needs “to feel comfortable enough to play.”

The Bulls wrap up the regular season with games at Orlando and Miami on Wednesday and Thursday, at home against Philadelphia on Saturday, at Brooklyn on Monday, and at home against Atlanta on April 15.
