DEERFIELD, Ill. — Injured Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is “not quite" ready to return from his knee injury, coach Tom Thibodeau said Friday.
The former MVP point guard continues to practice without restrictions, but his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee remains up in the air.
ESPNChicago.com reported Friday that Rose’s doctor has cleared him to play, but he has told the team he won’t until he can dunk with confidence off his left foot. Thibodeau said a decision “hasn’t been finalized yet."
