NBA: Rose to travel with team, but return still far off
Derrick Rose will travel on the Chicago Bulls’ two-game trip to Orlando and Miami, but coach Tom Thibodeau downplayed expectations of a more expedited return from knee surgery.
“You don’t want to rule out anything,” Thibodeau said. “But he has to go through regular practice for an extended amount of time before we even think about him playing.”
The general estimate on Rose has been a return after the All-Star break, sometime in late February or early March.
