It’s been a while since Derrick Rose stepped on to an NBA court. It’s also been a while since he was in Chicago.
One of the two changed recently when Rose stopped by Chi-Town where a crowd of over 4,000 waited to greet him.
Rose suggested that he was happy to be home, but more importantly, suggested that he has no physical restrictions when he does return to the hardwood, which shouldn’t be more than a few weeks – at least from a game action perspective.
“I haven’t been here in like two or 2½ months or something like that coming back from traveling,” Rose said. “I probably took two days off just working out just being in the house hanging out with my son. My son and family are here, and my fans are here, the die-hard fans are here, so it’s awesome being here.”
Rose said he has no limitations with training camp set to start at the end of the week. As far as playing regular minutes once preseason games start Oct. 5, Rose was a bit vague.
“My minutes, I can’t discuss that, but that’s something you can probably ask [coach Tom Thibodeau] or the front office,” Rose said. “For me, I feel good.”
