Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has dismissed the idea of a rift between the team and Derrick Rose's camp.

Thibodeau says Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf was adamant from the start that Rose would not rush back.

"We've made it clear that we don't want him out there unless he's comfortable," Thibodeau said. "So I think he understands that. He's done his part. We have to do what's right. I think we are."
