After missing the entire regular season while recovering
from a significant knee injury, no one really expected Chicago Bulls point
guard Derrick Rose to return for the playoffs. This is the vibe the Bulls have
been giving off, but coach Tom Thibodeau left the door open for a potential
return yesterday when speaking with reporters. He said that while Rose is “most
likely out” for the remainder of the postseason, “you never know,” according to
"Most likely out, but you never know. The playoffs are stretched out too, so you have to factor that in too. So, who knows another week from now where he is so, you always want to have that possibility open,” Thibodeau said.
