Rose Participating in Bulls Shootaround
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose spent Friday morning participating in his team’s shootaround on the road, the second time he’s done that in less than a week.
Rose, who was also with the Bulls in Orlando, spent time shooting on the floor in Miami before the media’s allotted time had come to an end. He still hasn’t been cleared for contact, but Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau says Rose is doing more and more each day.
Thibodeau was asked before Friday night’s game what it means to have Rose traveling with the team again.
“It means he’s moving along,” Thibodeau said. “And then this is the next step, so he’s doing more and more in terms of practicing with the team. But he still has to focus on his rehab. The team has to focus on improvement and our opponent, so it’s just the next step in his progression.”
