Bulls Fans Won’t Want To Hear This. Derrick Rose Return Update !!
According to ESPN:
Rose’s rehab has progressed to the point that he’s taking full contact, and although some have speculated he’ll return shortly after the All-Star break, Rose was more cautious.
“I don’t have a set date,” Rose told USA TODAY Sports. “I’m not coming back until I’m 110 percent. Who knows when that can be? It can be within a couple of weeks. It could be next year. It could be any day. It could be any time. It’s just that I’m not coming back until I’m ready.”
Asked how close he is to 110 percent, Rose estimated “in the high 80s.”
The 24-year-old former MVP also said he has added nearly 10 pounds of muscle.
Bulls management has been steadfast in maintaining that Rose won’t be allowed to return until doctors ensure he won’t face any more of a risk than any other player. Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said he doesn’t want to take the same risk he did with Michael Jordan, who broke a bone in his foot in his second season. Jordan returned without any further complications, but Reinsdorf said he won’t take that risk with Rose.
