Derrick Rose may finally be back to full strength again.
The Chicago Bulls point guard is playing 5-on-5 on a “daily basis” and no longer has any practice restrictions, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.
In fact, the 25-year-old “looks like the old Derrick Rose,” according to a witness.
“The Bulls are emboldened by their options and flexibility heading into the draft and free agency, and the No. 1 reason just happens to be their most important piece of the puzzle: Derrick Rose,” Berger wrote.
“…So much of the Bulls’ future is tied to the former MVP regaining his form and health, but the team’s focus now is getting him some help.”
Rose, who missed all but 10 games last season with a knee injury, is currently in his third year of a five-year, $94.3 million deal. Rose is a three-time NBA All-Star, and won the league’s Most Valuable Player award back in 2011.
There might not be any fancy commercials for “The Return” this time, but people in the Windy City would sure love to see Rose fully healthy again.
With rumors swirling about the possibility of Carmelo Anthony coming to Chicago, help could be on the way for the oft-injured point guard.
