If the speculation is true, hopefully Derrick Rose is coming back because he feels like he is ready and not because he is being pressured to return. Even though he has been cleared to play for week, if his mind isn’t right, he will only end up hurting himself and the Bulls. There has been rumblings that Monday, against the Nuggets, would be his official return back from his ACL injury.  Several sources close to the situation, have told BSO, the Bulls believe Monday will be the day.  If there is one thing I have learned, is sources can be wrong (ask Chris Broussard). Rose could still back out at the last minute, but don’t be surprised if Monday is the day, all Bulls fans have been waiting for. This Tweet from Bulls beat writer Mike McGraw, seems to confirm that Bulls are expecting something special against the Nuggets. Bulls announced today that Mon’s game vs. DEN is moving from CSN-plus to the main station. I’m sure fans can imagine a possible reason why. — Mike McGraw (@McGrawDHBulls) March 16, 2013
