Even as most people believe Derrick Rose will not play for the remainder of the season as he recovers from knee surgery, the Chicago Bulls have not been definitive in ruling the All-Star out. Some thought they were simply leaving their options open, but Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com reports it's because "they genuinely believe that Rose may be able to make his season debut at some point, possibly as early as Game 3 against the Miami Heat."While nothing has been confirmed, Kennedy reports that "word out of Chicago is that Rose may suit up for Game 3," which will be played on Friday. Just because he'd dress doesn't mean he'd play, and nothing has been confirmed as of yet.If Rose dresses, Kennedy says he would only be used in case of emergency. The Bulls are already without Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich, while Joakim Noah is battling a foot injury. Still, Chicago was able to defeat the Heat in Game 1.Rose is recovering from knee surgery which was required last year after he tore his ACL in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. He's been cleared to play and has resumed scrimmaging in practice.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

So the kid who survived the South Side of Chicago, one of America's harshest urban battlegrounds, is now a wimp. Yeah, the kid who learned the game getting bullied and beat up by three older, basketball-playing brothers has grown soft at the tender age of 24. Derrick Rose is a p---y. I ain't buying it. No way.

The Derrick Rose Saga…One thing I know for sure

Comments from the Other Side - Miami Heat Game 1 Bonus Edition 5/6

It's always fun to see the Miami bandwagon fans melt down after a loss.   It's so funny to see them complain about the officiating when they get the benefit of the calls 99.9% of the time.  In a game where the opponent took just 4 free throws more than them,  they are certain that the game was fixed.   They are used to getting all the calls and when a crew calls is...

Iman Shumpert throws down nasty put-back dunk

It wasn’t long ago that Knicks second-year man Iman Shumpert tore his ACL, much like Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose. However, as Rose is sitting on the sidelines watching his team battle the Miami Heat, Shumpert is contributing as the Knicks take on the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers. Apparently, those defensive Pacers forgot one of the first rules in basketball: blocking...
