Derrick Rose’s rehab from ACL surgery seems to progressing relatively well. It was revealed in January that he was taking full contact in practice, but Rose himself has cautioned that he’s “far away” from returning.
In keeping with that train of thought, Rose told CSN Chicago that while he feels good, he wouldn’t mind missing the entire season if he’s not completely sure that he’s ready.
“I really don’t know,” Rose said when asked about his return to the court. “I’m feeling good, but like I said, if it’s where it’s taking a long time and I’m still not feeling right, I don’t mind missing this year.”
“Right now I’m feeling pretty good, man. I’m slowly getting back in the mix. The other day, we played a three-on-three, one-on-one and I felt good out there. I’m not trying to rush myself, just still trying to be patient and just trying to take my rehab very seriously right now,” he continued, surrounded by a small contingent of local reporters in the visiting locker room
