However, that doesn't mean Rose will return to the court in the near future as it was always the plan to have him increase his basketball workload in an effort to get familiar with his new teammates, have a comfort level in running the offense and regain a semblence of his timing. According to a person with knowedge of the situation.""
The target date forto return to the basketball court is after the National Basketball Association All Star break.
The Chicago Bulls officials are rushing Derrick to return to the basketball court because they are thinking a long term relationship with Rose and not risk cutting his great basketball career short.
Rose is recovering from a torn ACL injury he suffered in the first game of the 2010-11 National Basketball Association playoffs which was second guessed by the media that Rose could have avoided getting hurt by being on the sidelines because the game was ending and his presence would jeopardize his chances of suffering an injury during a basketball game.
