Derrick Rose Says He’s ’100 Percent’ Healthy

While on a promotional tour in China this week, Derrick Rose said he’s “100 percent” and fully recovered. Rose is expected to suit up for Bulls’ pre-season opener on October 5. From CSN Chicago: “‘I think I am 100 percent,’ Rose said. ‘I’m doing almost everything. I’m squatting, running, lifting almost every other day, just being back on the court after you have an ACL injury, you’re kind of hesitant at first about how you step, what way you should step, learning how to run, accelerate, accelerate while you run and while you’re slowing down. For me, I’m reacting right now where all I have to think about is if I have to get to a spot, I’m going to get there no matter what. It kind of feels good having that feeling again.’”

    Well, it has been like 16 months…good to hear though, I’m hoping for really big things from him this season, close to 25 and 10.

    training camp and pre-season is overrated. opening night should be tomorrow

    Considering he’s been out so long I think 20 and 8 is
    probably more likely. However I hope you’re right.

    That’s what i was thinking, but maybe he’ll master whatever he hasn’t got down yet between now and Oct. 5.
