Report: Bulls’ Rose Almost Ready For Full Contact Practice

8483499The Bulls are finally getting some good news as they trudge through the season without their star player. Here’s Nick Friedell from ESPN Chicago with the report.

CHICAGO — Derrick Rose may be ready to take full contact in practice this week as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL in his left knee.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau admitted as much before Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“Very close,” Thibodeau said, when asked if Rose would be cleared for full contact. “Very close. That will be the next step.”

That’s certainly good news for the Bulls. But in that same report, Coach Tom Thibodeau cautioned that his return could still be far away. Still, if he’s cleared for full contact practice, Rose will make his return on the court sooner rather than later.

It had been mentioned that he could make a February return. He had surgery in May and recovery is anywhere from eight to 12 months. He tore his ACL in the last minute of Game 1 of the Bulls’ first-round playoff match-up with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers would go on to upset the first-seeded Bulls in six games.

Rose averaged 21.8 points and 7.9 assists last season. He won the Most Valuable Player award in the 2010-11 season, the youngest player to ever win the prestigious award. He was 22 years old at the time he won the award and averaged a sparkling 25.0 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 7.7 assists. That season, he helped the Bulls to a 62-20 record and got the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bulls fell to the Miami in the East Finals in five games.

This year, the Bulls have been doing fairly well without Derrick Rose. Chicago is 24-16 and the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. They just recently came off a victory against the Lakers, 95-83.
