Derrick Rose may return to practice within a few weeks, according to an NBA source.

Rose underwent surgery on his left ACL in May.

‘‘That’s the belief that a couple of [the Bulls’] players are under,’’ the source said.

Asked Monday if there was a specific timetable for Rose to start practicing, general manager Gar Forman answered in a text message: ‘‘We’re still taking the process step by step, and a date hasn’t been set.’’

Rose has been able to cut on his knee for at least two weeks.
