“I’ve talked to some people that I trust, and he is definitely ahead of schedule. There’s absolutely no doubt that he will be ready to come back well ahead of February potentially. You do want to be careful, but the reality is this, if he’s 100% then you know what, you let him come back and you let him play. The reality is, once you get to 100%, keeping him out longer doesn’t necessarily guarantee that he won’t get injured again, that has nothing to do with it.  The real issue is, just how good can this Bulls team be with him at 100%, because they’re not as good on their bench as they were a season ago and so that’s the real area of concern, can this team actually contend with a healthy Derrick Rose?” via Greg Anthony on Yahoo!
