Bulls unsure if Rose Will Travel with Team
Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said the organization hasn’t come up with a plan yet for the injured Derrick Rose to travel with the team this season, and he wants the focus to be on rehabbing Rose’s knee.
“Just concentrate on the rehab,” Thibodeau said after Monday afternoon’s practice. “He’s taking care of that and the rest of the guys are taking care of being ready to play. At some point he’ll re-join us and he’s doing fine, working hard, coming along.”
Thibodeau isn’t sure if Rose will sit on the bench, or travel with the team in the beginning of the season, but he is happy with the progress Rose is making.
“It depends on what’s going to serve us best,” Thibodeau said of Rose’s presence on the bench. “He’s usually doing rehab during a part of the game, so I want that to be the focus. He may travel some, he may not. If it better serves us to have him here or some place doing rehab, we’re going to do that.
