Paxson: Bulls 'Need To Be More Detailed And In-Depth' With Players
After a season Derrick Rose sat out with a torn ACL and Kirk Hinrich and Luol Deng missed critical playoff games, John Paxson thinks the Chicago Bulls' organization must be more connected in the health of its players.
"We need to be more detailed and in-depth with our guys," Paxson said. "Our training staff is terrific and our medical people are outstanding. I do think that a guy like (Luol Deng) doesn't have commitments this summer, Derrick's had the year to improve his body and will be working out all summer. Our guys know how to work the right way.
"We have to be confident we're putting things in place where we'll be healthy next year."
Bulls management says Rose and Hinrich have been working out, rest is helping Joakim Noah's plantar fasciitis and Deng has enough strength to travel throughout Europe.
