GREAT news to hear!
Derrick Rose is dunking and shooting jumpers as he returns to practice.
The one rule is for his Chicago Bulls' teammates to move out of the way as he continues the 'predictable contact' part of his rehab.
“We definitely don’t want to get him hurt again, so if he’s going to the cup, let him go,’’ Jimmy Butler said of the Rose rules. “Open jumper, contest it, but don’t let him come down any wrong way.’’
Rose will next begin all-out contact in a full practice, and he’s getting closer to that.
“You can tell he’s a great player, so he doesn’t really show it too often,’’ Butler said, ‘‘but you know that he wants to be out there with us, be out there competing, helping us get these wins. You ask him about it, and he’s like, ‘Man, I’m so ready.’ But who knows?’’

I am sure it will take him some time to get in "Game Shape". Also, I bet not only will we all be a little cautious- he will be as well...
That will pass though cuz he is D-ROSE!!!!!

I have to admit I'll be pretty worried when he's back on the court because I don't want him to get injured again... but man those are GREAT news I just can't wait to see the Bulls with him... they're going to be so pumped up... can't wait to see that amazing standing ovation as well. Man, Rose is a player everyone should respect.
I dont really like him and I hate the Bulls, but its hard not to respect the way he plays the game and carries himself. He dont go out trying to recruit superstars to come play with him and I respect that, at least there is still a guy out there thats wants to beat the best not cry to have them come play with him so he can get a ring, and I respect that. I would like him more if he did not wear a Bulls jersey thou,lol.
I would walk thru hell in a gasoline suit to play the game of baseball- Pete Rose
