We're getting to the point now where it seems smart to just write off the season. Derrick Rose has missed the majority of the far while recovering from knee surgery. He has been medically cleared to play, but he says he's not there mentally. Now, when asked about his possible return, Rose is even more vague.
According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, Rose still does not have a return date in mind. He was asked when he would come back considering the season is almost over, and Rose just didn't have a straight answer.
"It could be tomorrow and I feel like I could play the next game," said Rose, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the playoffs last year. "Nobody knows but God."
I'm sure Bulls fans wish God would give them an answer sooner rather than later. A healthy Rose changes the entire flow and skill level of the Bulls. They are a solid team without him, but they are a bonafide championship contender when he's healthy.
Rose has averaged 21.0 points and 6.8 assists per game in his career. Last season, he looked like an MVP who was on the verge of breaking out big time. Rose averaged 21.8 points and 7.9 assists per game.
