Derrick Rose Plans to Return this Season

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose talked to the media for the first time since undergoing surgery on his torn right meniscus. Rose is expected back this season, and he said as much on Monday, although he wouldn’t put any type of definitive timetable on his return:

It seems some are upset that Rose isn’t guaranteeing a return, but all indications are that he’ll be back this year:

Rose said he can’t jump yet, but for now he’s focused on his conditioning.

The tidbit that stood out to me was Rose saying he had been playing with the injury for about a month. The game against the Golden State Warriors (where he hit the game-winning shot in overtime) was mentioned specifically:

To me, that’s almost a positive. Rose was extremely inconsistent leading up to the surgery, and he didn’t seem to always have that explosion that made him so special as the MVP in 2011. Now that he doesn’t have to deal with that problematic meniscus anymore, he might return even better. Or so that’s the hope for Chicago.
