The Chicago Bulls are struggling to stay afloat in the Eastern Conference playoff picture and so far their topsy-turvy season seems to be working out alright. Despite major injuries and huge trades, the team is 26-25 and in the fourth seed at the moment.
Chicago’s hope is continue rising and overtake the Toronto Raptors for the third seed, a goal that is less than two games away. They’ll have to continue winning without Derrick Rose and without any hope that he’ll back back in 2014.
According to Bulls front office members who spoke at a charity event on Wednesday, the Bulls are working under the assumption that Rose is out for the season.
Speaking at Bulls charity function, general manager Gar Forman reiterates team is working under premise that Derrick Rose is out for season.

The Bulls never applied for the Disabled Player Exception to add someone in Rose’s place and haven’t ruled him out completely from returning. Still, the team is starting to win without Rose, again, and it seems they’re going to have to play out the rest of the seasons without him — again.
