Confirmed: Derrick Rose will return on Monday
http://flapship.com/derrick-rose-to-ret ... t-nuggets/

Speculation and anticipation have reached an all-time high, and it seems that the Chicago Bulls are about to get a big boost from one of the hardest working players in the NBA. A source close to the situation has confirmed that Derrick Rose will finally make his long-awaited return to the Chicago Bulls on Monday night against the Denver Nuggets. Rose, who has been out of the lineup since tearing his left ACL in the first game of the 2012 playoffs on April 28th, has been rehabbing hard and is finally ready to return.

FWIW

Derrick Rose will be a gametime decision on Monday as the Chicago Bulls host the Denver Nuggets. Those close to the situation say that while Rose is still not feeling “normal” he does feel as he could play and and “take the next step” in his rehab.

K.C Johnson ‏@KCJHoop

No changes on Bulls injuries. Hinrich, Gibson didn't practice, doubtful vs. Nuggets. Rose practiced but no sign of playing. Rip out.

I tweeted Friday that Derrick Rose has clearly expanded his offensive arsenal. You asked for more details, so here they are:

-a much smoother; higher-arcing 3
-a quick-release step-back mid-range jumper
-and you know that trademark right-handed floater from 10-12 feet? He's working on being able to make the same shot from the same distance left-handed.


This last bit will either make your eyes roll or loins grow so...

Spoiler:
"It seems unlikely for someone to grow in height at 24, but I'd swear he's gone from 6'3" to 6'4. I'm the former and we were eye level the last time I spoke to him. All in all, he seemed to be in great spirits and, while it was merely a pre-game workout and a brief post-game conversation, I fully expect DRose 2.0 to be even better than the original" -Ric Bucher


That observation by Bucher could be do to the strengthening of Derricks core.

I've gone through and deleted a bunch of the commentary posts in this thread so that it can be more streamlined-- just news/updates-- as per the original intent. Please restrict your posts here to updates. Commentary in the other thread.

Can everyone please post everything they post here in the discussion thread as well? It's really awkward trying to quote posts from this thread in the discussion thread.

KC Johnson / Trib
With 16 games remaining in the Chicago Bulls' season, Derrick Rose doesn't feel like he's running out of time to return from last May's left knee surgery.

That's because, throughout the process, Rose has worked under the same premise.

"Whenever I’m ready, I’m going to be out there," Rose said after Thursday's morning shootaround at the Berto Center.

Sounding very much like a player who may sit all season, Rose talked encouragingly about what his game will look like whenever he returns. As for when that is?

"It can be tomorrow where I feel I can play next game," he said. "Nobody knows but God."

For those excited that Rose may say Friday that he's ready to play Saturday, listen to more of Rose's comments.

"Bad," Rose said, when asked how much he wants to play. "But knowing that my health is the biggest key. I’m only 24 years old. I got the whole future in front of me. I’m just trying to take my time.

"When I got my teammates behind me and they see how hard I’m pushing in practice and I’m seeing how hard they’re fighting for me on the court, it makes me want to go harder. It makes me want to be out there more too. But you have to look at the big picture."

Rose said he has suffered no setbacks but has endured normal pain as his activity level has increased.

"Still about the same where you warm up a little bit, be loose, then activity picks up and it gets back sore," Rose said, when asked if all pain is gone. "It’s going through that.

"I'm just getting used to my activity picked up a little bit. Just getting used to running, playing 5-on-5, doing everything I used to do."

Rose said he feels physically stronger from weightlifing and core work throughout the process, which passed the 10-month mark nine days ago.

"I’m way stronger," He said. "Just seeing how I’m going to put that in my game, I don’t know yet. When we’re playing 5-on-5, I’m trying to pick the right spots and really find out how strong I am.

"During 5-on-5, I’m very comfortable when I’m out there playing, If anything, it’s much easier because I can shoot the ball much better. Sometimes, you kind of think a little bit when I’m out there. That’s when I know I’ll be ready to play, when I’m out there not thinking but reacting."

Rose said he's confident he will return "a better player" and has drawn confidence seeing Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio and Knicks swingman Iman Shumpert return from tearing their ACLs.

"I'm just trying to stay focused," Rose said. "Try not to listen to a lot of the people on the outside and just do my job. My job is to come in and push hard every day. My trainers have been doing a great job making sure I’m taking care of that. Just try to get out there as quickly as possible."
