Derrick Rose has played just five of the Bulls’ 13 games this season, and he’s missed the last four with a hamstring injury originally described as day-to-day.
But his return nears, as he’s overcome one major hurdle in the comeback process.
Nick Friedell of ESPN:
Anything Rose says about his injury is subject to unfair scrutiny, and this will surely rile up his critics. But every injury requires the same two things before a player can return:
1. The injury must heal.
2. The player must return to game shape after missing time.
