Pass The Pill:
Could Derrick Rose return for the playoffs? NBA fans get ready for deja vu as this will become a theme throughout the basketball season while Derrick Rose recovers from a torn meniscus in his right knee. As we all painfully remember last season, we heard non-stop stories about when Rose would return following an ACL injury. And now it’s looking like history will repeat itself as Rose has already answered his first “comeback” question. Via RealGM: Rose was asked if he could return for the playoffs. “If I’m healthy and the situation is right – I’m playing,” said Rose. Rose also was asked if the Bulls may have to move on without him. “You can be a fool if you want to,” said Rose. The Chicago Bulls may want to think about trading away some pieces and rebuild. This is a loaded draft and if the Bulls could pair Rose with one of the young studs coming out in next June’s draft, the team could be set for the next decade. The Bulls clearly aren’t going to win a title this year without Rose, so why try to be a middle of the pack team? Rose should take his time and let the team use this opportunity to pair him with another potential superstar from next year’s NBA Draft. The post Derrick Rose to be back for the playoffs? appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.

Is it time to let him go? Rose answered that question directly on Thursday during the first media session he has participated in since he underwent surgery to repair the MCL in his right knee.

I can see the Bulls didn’t prep him properly for this Q&A session. These words should have never came out of his mouth.

Rose again says "there's a chance I could come back."
Chicago Bulls PR department doesn’t exactly have the best track record over the past couple of seasons. I think they just dropped the ball again by allowing Rose to say this.

Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins sat out Tuesday night’s 97-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder while nursing an ankle injury.

Yup, the Knicks stink. The Nets stink. The Bulls don’t have Derrick Rose.. AGAIN. The NBA’s Eastern Conference is the Pacers and the Heat. Other than that it’s a waste. I imagine the Pacers and the Heat are going to have this thing locked up with PLENTY of time left in the season. With that said – the Pacers...
Even without Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls have shown they can be an elite team if they defend and rebound at a high level.
That formula has served them well in years past when Rose has been out, and it's what the Bulls will look to do for the remainder of the season with their star guard sidelined because of another knee injury.
Chicago will continue that approach against...
