Taj Gibson: Derrick Rose ‘can’t wait to play’
Derrick Rose’s conversations on the sideline Monday night may give the Chicago Bulls hope that he may be considering a return during the playoffs.
Rose, who sat on the end of the bench for just the third time this season during Game 2 of the Bulls’ first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, acknowledged to teammates just how much he misses being out on the floor.
“Me and him were chatting it up the whole time at the end of the bench,” forward Taj Gibson said after the Bulls’ 90-82 victory. “He was just eager. He was just saying like, he can’t wait to get back, he can’t wait to play. And just critiquing the game, talking about what we needed to do, what kind of plays. He knew a lot of the sets coming out so he would just scream out plays. He was just hyped talking about good stuff.”
