Derrick Rose now says hamstring keeping him off the court

Derrick Rose's return to the court may be delayed due to a hamstring problem, not a concern over dunking from his left foot as he previously said.  Apparently rose had been feeling a burning in his hamstring during five-on-five practice, and he won't consider a return until that goes away.

It's not clear why the Chicago Bulls aren't managing the injury news for Rose, but as Mark Schanowski of CSN Chicago says, it's strange that network TV reporters are breaking the Derrick Rose injury news.  Last night, Doris Burke gave us new of this hamstring issue on the television broadcast.

Rose had previously said his recovery was completely mental now.  He said that when he felt comfortable dunking off his left foot, he would return.  Now, there's another injury to be concerned about?

The Bulls need Rose back, but they need him back in the right state of mind.  He has openly admited to the psychological problems he is facing with returning from his knee injury - and most players face the same issues - but the only way for him to get past those issues is to be honest about where he is at with his recovery and what the next steps are.
