Rose Confident about Playing in Olympics
Derrick Rose sat for the 26th time Thursday night. The London Olympics begin in 98 days.
If Rose, as expected, makes the U.S. team, might his myriad injuries give him pause?
“I really haven’t thought about it,” Rose said. “But I’ve said before if I get the opportunity to play in those, it would be a great opportunity. I would have to make the smart decision. But I don’t think it would change my mind because if I’m able to play through the playoffs, I should be able to play in the Olympics.
“You also have to remember I probably wouldn’t play that many minutes because of the great team we would have. Representing your country is a huge honor.”
