Derrick Rose Could Return on October 5

Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose has let the world know that he’ll play in the season opener, but we may get a glimpse of him on the court in the preseason on October 5 in Indiana. Per the Daily Herald: “The Bulls released their preseason schedule on Thursday and it features games in Indianapolis, St. Louis and Rio de Janeiro before the first contest at the United Center on Oct. 16 against Detroit. Rose said during a recent European promotional tour he feels 100 percent healthy and plans to play in the preseason opener. He’s been sidelined since April 28, 2012 when he tore the ACL in his left knee in a playoff game against Philadelphia. The Bulls will start the preseason against Central Division rival Indiana on Sat., Oct. 5, then face Memphis at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. After that, they’ll play the first NBA game in Brazil on Sat. Oct. 12 against Washington. After Detroit, the Bulls will host Indiana on Oct. 18, Milwaukee on Oct. 21, followed by Nate Robinson and the Denver Nuggets on Oct. 25.”
