Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose says a lack of muscle memory is one of the things holding him back from returning to the court from knee surgery, TNT reported Thursday.
“I was able to speak with Derrick off-camera a couple days ago, and he’s telling me how badly he does want to be out there, but he says that he just doesn’t have the muscle memory back, is the way he put it,” sideline reporter Rachel Nichols said during the network’s coverage of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Nichols also said that the lack of muscle memory is affecting the way Rose’s knee feels and the way he shoots, and that until his body can react without him thinking about it, he doesn’t want to be on the court and unsure of himself.
