When head coach Tom Thibodeau was questioned about Rose, he had the following to offer Chicago Tribune reporter K.C. Johnson:
"He's coming along fine," Thibodeau said. "He's doing more and more, but he still has a long way to go."

Rose is expected to join his team in the next few weeks, as Thibodeau has hinted that traveling with the team will help the oft-injured guard with his rehabilitation.
The Bulls were winners of five-straight before being handed a bad loss by the Washington Wizards yesterday. The Bulls continue to do it with defense, as their 91.9 points allowed per game is good for second best in the NBA.
This report lends credence to the possibility of Rose returning this season, but fans and NBA devout know that Rose will not push himself. No matter when it surfaces, it is almost a certainty now that Rose news is almost always bad news.
