CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrick Rose isn't quite ruling out a return to the Chicago
Bulls this season.
The superstar point guard left the door slightly open for a comeback in the
playoffs if his surgically repaired right knee is healed - even though the team
has said he will miss the rest of the year.
Rose suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee in a game at Portland on
Nov. 22. He had surgery in Chicago three days later, cutting short his long
awaited return after he sat out last season recuperating from a torn anterior
cruciate ligament in his left knee.
He said Thursday that he would come back for the playoffs "If I'm healthy and
my meniscus is fully healed."
