Derrick Rose is hoping to make his comeback to the NBA court this season after multiple knee injuries have kept him out of action the past two seasons, and he is working to get back in top form while working with Team USA.
It had appeared that Rose was making progress, but there could be some cause for concern among the Chicago Bulls fan base.
According to a report from ESPN.com, Rose is still dealing with soreness in both of his surgically repaired knees.
From the report:
A source familiar with Rose’s condition said that Rose has been bothered by knee soreness since his return to the floor Saturday night in an exhibition victory over Brazil in Chicago and requested the extra time to recover. But Team USA officials, to this point, have downplayed concerns about Rose’s status.
With the knee soreness, you have to be concerned about whether or not it was a smart move for Rose to play this summer with Team USA.
Rose needs to focus on helping the Chicago Bulls on the court, and if his knees are already feeling some soreness from games in international play it could be a bad sign for what to expect this season.
We will just have to wait and see.
