Although rumors persist that Chicago Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose may attempt a comeback this season and he is obviously antsy to get back on the court, the Bulls maintain that Rose will not play until next season.

However, the Bulls did give an update on his condition.

“He’s doing some running, yeah,’’ Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday before the game against the Warriors via Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun Times. “So he’s off the anti-gravity treadmill. Still on it at times, but he’s full-weight now and doing lateral slides and things like that. But he’s nowhere near practicing or anything like that.

“Doing a little bit more. He’s moving along, but nowhere close to practice.’’

Thibodeau also reiterated Rose’s status.

“He’s out for the season,’’ Thibodeau said. “I don’t know what else you guys want . . . and again, I think that’s a step-by-step thing. He’s doing great; he’s out for the season. Nothing has changed there.’’

It is certainly good to hear Rose continues to improve.

In 10 games for the Bulls this season, Rose averaged 15.9 points, 4.3 assists, 3.2 rebounds in 31.1 minutes per game.

  • Real M-Fing talk !!!

    Derrick “soft girl scout cookie” Rose, feeling great does not mean a think, because we all know Derrick “Masingill” Rose needs to be, not only be 100% physically fit , but feel 100% mentally right regardless if his teammates are down and out… oh and do not forget that Derrick “cottonelle” Rose needs the final thumbs up from his god. I cant believe this guy is still holding on to a MVP he didn’t deserved or earned…. but was given to him by default, Worsssse MVP ever , maybe next to Nash
