Derrick Rose returned to the contact portions of practice on Monday and is on track for his four-to-six week recovery from a knee injury.
"He was aggressive," Tom Thibodeau said. "He was a little winded, but we expected that. Overall, I thought it was good. He said he feels good physically. The big thing is going to be the wind and conditioning. He’s been out a long time."
The goal is for Rose to log as many regular-season games as possible with the Chicago Bulls to build chemistry and conditioning.
