DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose participated Monday in five-on-five drills, the latest step in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters after practice that Rose “did what everyone else did.”
Rose has been sidelined since he tore his ACL late in last season’s playoff-opening win over Philadelphia. The top-seeded Bulls wound up losing that first-round series.
In an interview with USA TODAY Sports recently, Rose said he wasn’t coming back until he was “110 percent” and later said he could miss the season.
The Bulls have said that he is on schedule and that they won’t rush him back.
The Bulls are second in the Central division at 30-22 and play at New Orleans on Tuesday.
