Rose Dunking Again, Getting Closer To All-Out Contact In Practice
Derrick Rose is dunking and shooting jumpers as he returns to practice.
The one rule is for his Chicago Bulls' teammates to move out of the way as he continues the 'predictable contact' part of his rehab.
“We definitely don’t want to get him hurt again, so if he’s going to the cup, let him go,’’ Jimmy Butler said of the Rose rules. “Open jumper, contest it, but don’t let him come down any wrong way.’’
Rose will next begin all-out contact in a full practice, and he’s getting closer to that.
“You can tell he’s a great player, so he doesn’t really show it too often,’’ Butler said, ‘‘but you know that he wants to be out there with us, be out there competing, helping us get these wins. You ask him about it, and he’s like, ‘Man, I’m so ready.’ But who knows?’’
