Speculation started to grow Friday night following the Bulls win over the Warriors when Daily Herald writer, Mike McGraw, tweeted that CSN Chicago had switched the Bulls/Nuggets game to air on the main network instead of on the previously scheduled CSN Chicago Plus. Despite the ensuing rumors that flooded through social media suggesting Derrick Rose would be suiting up Monday, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times that is simply not true.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
Two Bulls sources squashed the rumor, saying it’s business as usual for Rose as he recovers from surgery in May to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. That means a full-go in practice Sunday and a re-evaluation Monday. Then it’s up to Rose to decide if he’s ready to return.
