Rose not worried about doubters ... or Melo

NEW YORK -- Derrick Rose wants to prove all of his doubters wrong, but he's trying not to let all the doubts about his game get into his head. As Rose gets set to open a new season against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night (ESPN, 8 ET), the former MVP sounds excited about being back on the floor after playing in just 10 games over the past two seasons because of two serious knee injuries. "I can't get caught up in that," he said of the doubters.

Bulls 2014-15 position preview: The point guards

Derrick Rose looks primed for a big comeback season as long as he can stay healthy. So hey, the NBA season starts tomorrow! The Bulls of course don't start until Wednesday against the Knicks, and watch out, Carmelo Anthony knows all of their secrets. But before the season starts, I'd like to take a quick look at the roster. First up, the point guards. Derrick Rose Preseason stats: 21.9 MPG, 16.5 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.9 APG, 48.4 FG%, 43.3 3P% Suffice to say, watching Rose kick ass in those last two preseason games was pretty awesome. It was all working for him: the drives, the floaters, the...

Derrick Rose isn’t concerned, but Tom Thibodeau says Bulls have work to do

The preseason couldn’t have gone any better to Bulls point guard Derrick Rose. Sure, there were hiccups for Rose and his teammates, but none seemed to have Rose the least bit worried. “I’m not concerned at all,’’ Rose said after the Bulls finished exhibition play 4-4. “I’m not concerned with the team. I know how hard we work as a team. Individually, I’m definitely not concerned with that. But as a team, seeing how everybody is focused. As long as...

Derrick Rose preseason higlights: 27 points in 31 minutes against Minnesota

It looked like Rose tired a bit late in his most extended preseason action as he and his team coughed up a big late lead against the Timberwolves, but for much of the game he looked pretty great. 27 points on 12-23 shooting (3-7 from three) in 31 and a half minutes. Pretty bizarrely had 0 FT attempts in the game, though as you can see the Minnesota defense wasn't exactly blanketing him enough to even foul. The floater looked especially good. And he's feeling alright about it too: I think my confidence is still growing. The game is still slowing down to me. I'm just running the game a little...

Bulls vs. Timberwolves final score: Chicago blows 13-point 4th-quarter lead in preseason finale

Derrick Rose had another strong game, but the Bulls' offense went into a slumber in the fourth quarter and they dropped their preseason finale. The Bulls and Wolves played a preseason game in St. Louis for some reason, and the game turned out about as weird as the location. Chicago had a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter with its regulars on the floor against Minnesota's reserves, but the Wolves came storming back to steal a 113-112 victory. I was all ready to be super excited about Derrick Rose's performance, and for the most part, it was really good. Rose finished with 27 points on...

Rose's performance brings joy to locker room

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The most noticeable part of Derrick Rose's 30-point explosion was the impact it had on the rest of his teammates. The Chicago Bulls lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, but you wouldn't have guessed it from the smiles that lit up their faces while they talked about Rose performing at the highest level again. They watched as Rose drove to the rim and knocked down jumper after jumper in the first half. They nodded in appreciation as Rose's cuts opened up the floor for everybody else.

LeBron James, Derrick Rose set stage for future thrillers: Joe Vardon's instant analysis

LeBron James scored 18 points and teased a matchup against Chicago's red-hot Derrick Rose in the fourth quarter.

Rose could see minutes increased vs. Hornets

CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose could take the next step in his return and have his minutes increased in the team’s sixth preseason game Sunday, coach Tom Thibodeau said on Saturday. Rose hasn’t played more than 22 minutes in any of the Bulls’ first five preseason games. The Bulls have three preseason games remaining. They play the Charlotte Hornets in Chicago on Sunday. “I want to see how it unfolds in terms of where he is, where we are in the game,” Thibodeau said after practice Saturday.

Should there be concern over Derrick Rose's lack of crunch time minutes?

CHICAGO -- The most intriguing moment of Thursday night's game did not come when Jimmy Butler drained a winning 3 at the buzzer over some Atlanta Hawks bench players. It came with six minutes and seven seconds left in the fourth quarter, when Butler came to the scorer's table to check back into the game with Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol. That instance was a lot more important than a meaningless preseason win because of who was not with Butler, Noah and Gasol when they went to check in: Derrick Rose.

Jimmy Butler hits game-winner, proving to be ‘another threat’

Obviously, Jimmy Butler’s spot in the starting lineup is safe. He made a game-winning three-pointer at the horn and had 29 points in the Bulls’ 85-84 victory Thursday over the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center. “We tell Jimmy to shoot the ball more all the time,’’ Derrick Rose said after the victory, which improved the Bulls’ preseason record to 3-2. “Thank God Jimmy is catching his rhythm right now. He’s another threat. Offensively, he knows how to...
