As reported by the Associated Press at ESPN.com, coach Tom Thibodeau was posed the question as to whether or not Rose would be ready for the playoffs. Although Rose is doing more and coming along and able to participate more in practice, he's out for the year. Rose is looking to return this summer at the World Cup of Basketball. Hopes are that he'll be 100 percent ready to go for the 2014-2015 season.
Rose is in his fifth NBA season out of Memphis. Rose has played only 49 games over the past three seasons due to injury. In ten games this season, he's averaging 15.9 points, 4.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game. In 289 career games, all with the Bulls, Rose is averaging 20.8 points, 6.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.
