Rose eyes return to the court
CHICAGO (AP) - Bulls star Derrick Rose expects to return to the court soon.
In a video posted Friday on his Facebook page, the point guard says he's been receiving therapy on a daily basis as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee along with two tears in the meniscus cartilage. He says he is ``going to be all right'' and ``should be back there on the court soon.''
Rose was injured late in a playoff-opening win over Philadelphia, and the Bulls bowed out in the first round. Team physician Dr. Brian Cole has said Rose could return around mid-January to early February or miss next season, but how soon he regains the form that made him the 2010-11 MVP remains to be seen.
