Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose has started participating in the team's practices, although he is not taking part in contract drills and is still a ways from playing in a game, CSNChicago.com reported. Rose, who is recovering from a torn anterior-cruciate ligament, has participated fully in non-contact aspects of practice recently, according to the report. The plan is to have Rose increase his workload gradually and get him familiar with his new teammates while regaining his timing. Rose is not expected to return to game action until after the All-Star break, according to the CSNChicago.com report.

As far as what Rose has been doing in practice, it’s much of the same as what has been previously — walking through “dummy” offensive sets, shooting drills — but according to a person familiar with the proceedings, he’s also dunking the basketball occasionally, going full speed when it’s called for and participating in staples of Bulls practices, such as defensive slides...
Derrick Rose will travel on the Chicago Bulls’ two-game trip to Orlando and Miami, but coach Tom Thibodeau downplayed expectations of a more expedited return from knee surgery.
Thibodeau said Rose won’t sit on the bench during the games.

The Chicago Bulls have managed what most would have thought impossible when the season started; they've remained surprisingly competitive in the Eastern Conference without their superstar, Derrick Rose. They have done so while battling injuries to numerous other role players on the team, but they got a boost last night when Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton returned to the...
Another person with knowledge of the situation told CSNChicago.com that it won’t affect the Bulls’ roster moves, particularly in regard to backup point guard Nate Robinson — and his non-guaranteed contract, of which the team must make a decision about by Jan. 10 — who is likely to remain with the squad for the rest of the season.

CHICAGO -- Richard Hamilton made a successful return from a foot injury and the teammate he sent back to the bench, Marco Belinelli, scored 17 points in his return to a reserve role as the Chicago Bulls beat Washington 87-77 on Saturday at the United Center. Belinelli had started the previous 12 games in place of Hamilton, who tore the plantar fascia in his left foot on Dec. 1...
The current team of Michael Jordan bested the old team of Michael Jordan in a New Year’s Eve matinee, which is extremely embarrassing for the Chicago Bulls. The Charlotte Bobcats ended their 18 game losing streak 91-81 on the road at the United Center. Remember, this is the same team that set a NBA record for lowest ever winning percentage in a season.
It’s clear the Bulls need...

The chief concern is Hinrich's left knee, which cost him time earlier in December. Hinrich has battled numerous injuries this season.
