Bulls PG Derrick Rose settling in for long season
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/16/14) The early returns in training camp on Bulls point guard Derrick Rose are positive - at least if you ask him and Tom Thibodeau.
Injuries have limited Rose to just 49 games over the past three years. He plans on a full-go this season. But it has taken some time for him to readjust to the daily grind and find his rhythm on the court.
"I feel good," he told NBA.com. "I feel the same every night. Just try to get all the rust off and continue to play well."
Rose is averaging 12 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in just 17.7 minutes through four preseason games. Thibodeau is happy with his performance, particularly his aggressivenss in transition.
"That's one of the things he's done very, very well," he said. "Off of blocked shots, when we're pressuring the ball properly, when we're forcing turnovers and getting into the open floor, we're getting easy baskets. That's when he's impossible to guard."
Rose is seeking to gain more patience with his game.
"I'm trying to take whatever they give me," he said. "They give me the lane some and I'm just trying to mix it up. I'm shooting some jump shots and just trying to get the nerves out and continue to play aggressive."
Derrick Rose excited about 'space to move around' in Bulls' offense
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/1/14) Bulls guard Derrick Rose spoke Tuesday with enthusiasm about Chicago's outlook in 2014-15 after the team made a few key offseason acquisitions and some changes in the game plan, according to NBA.com.
"Just thinking about how I’m actually going to attack in the offense," Rose said. "I’ve got a lot of space now, especially with Pau (Gasol) being able to knock down that li’l 12-foot shot or 15-foot shot. … It’s just going to be space to really move around.
"They’re trying to make the game as simple as possible. If I have an open shot, shoot. If I have a pull-up, shoot it. Shoot a lot more floaters so that people won’t touch my body like they did in the past throughout the entire game. I think that really hurts you I think as an athlete -- you need your years."
Derrick Rose will have no restrictions at Team USA camp
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
|(7/28/14) Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a recent interview that Bulls guard Derrick Rose would have no physical limitations once training camp begins for USA basketball. In a Q&A with Yahoo Sports, Krzyzewski said he believes Rose intends to compete for a spot.
"He says he's ready to go," Krzyzewski said. "I'm excited about having him. He's very excited about being here."
Training camp begins Monday in preparation for the FIBA Basketball World Cup, which gets underway in August. Rose played in just 10 games before going down with yet another knee injury. He averaged 15.9 points and 4.3 assists per game in those 10 outings.
Derrick Rose practices Wednesday, still out for season
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/14) Bulls guard Derrick Rose was able to participate in part of the team's practice Wednesday, but that doesn't mean he is expected back at any point this season as he recovered from knee surgery.
"(He's doing) all the noncontact stuff," coach Tom Thibodeau told the Daily Herald after practice. "He's moving along fine. He has picked it up a little bit. But there's still no contact. He's out for the year, but he's doing well."
Rose is four months into his recovery, but the team has maintained throughout the process that he is not expected to play at any point this season. He has been out since suffering the injury Nov. 22, and ended up playing just 10 games this season after sitting out all of 2012-13 with a different knee injury.
Derrick Rose runs off antigravity treadmill
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/14) Bulls guard Derrick Rose has done some running off the antigravity treadmill, the Chicago Tribune reports. Rose is out for the remainder of the season and working to get healthy as early as possible for next season.
|The return of Derrick Rose from a torn ACL was a storyline 18 months in the making, which made it all the more depressing when he made it through just 10 games last season before succumbing to another knee injury. This time, Rose tore his meniscus in late November and ended up losing the remainder of the season as a result of the resulting surgery and recovery. Given his injury-plagued 2011-12 season, we haven't seen a full-strength Derrick rose since 2010-11, when he won his MVP Award. Rose was understandably rusty in his limited playing time last season, averaging 15.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, while shooting just 35.4 percent from the field overall. The risk of re-injury remains incredibly high at this point, considering how much time Rose has lost over the last three years, but his rustiness a year ago shouldn't be too much of a concern, given his prodigious talents. Rose is one of the toughest players to properly gauge the value of this season, but he probably won't last too long, especially if he makes it through the World Cup healthy. Rose probably won't last past the first four rounds on Draft Day, even considering the questions surrounding him.
