Bulls-coach-thibodeau
Tom Thibodeau joined Mike and Mike In The Morning on Thursday afternoon to discuss Bulls and the return of Derrick Rose.  Despite recent reports that Rose may be ahead of schedule and ready to practice soon, Thibodeau doesn’t expect him back until “some point during the second half of the season”: “He’s doing great and he’s right on schedule, he’s not ahead of schedule, he’s not behind. We have to be patient, it’s the type of injury that you have to take your time with. And, when he’s ready to come back, he’ll be ready to come back. There is no time schedule for it, he’s doing a lot, but he hasn’t done anything with contact, so we’re going to go step by step. First he has to get into practice and he has to practice well for awhile, and then we’ll move on from there. But, hopefully at some point during the second half of the season he’ll rejoin us.” via Mike and Mike, ESPN Radio
