Derrick Rose Willing to Sit Out Season if Knee Not Ready

by October 10, 2012


It has been suggested that Derrick Rose shouldn’t play at all this season, giving his surgically-repaired left knee a chance to fully heal. Rose says that he’s willing to consider the option, if he must. Per ESPN (via PBT): “Everybody has their own opinions,’ Rose said. ‘When the time comes I just have to be ready and prove to the people here that I am ready to play. Who knows when that time is? If it’s all year I might wait the whole year, so what? If I come back at the All-Star (break), so what? If anything, I think I’ve learned it’s going to help me with my patience. I think I’m way more patient.'”
