D-Rose Comeback: Episode III showcasing star's high value

Three games into the latest Derrick Rose comeback, there are signs of where he can dominate between the ears. And the Bulls need it. Derrick Rose has been back for three games in four days over the recent week and showed signs for optimism to Bulls fans.

Chicago Bulls top five stories of the week

Derrick Rose returned! Again! He's been on a minutes restriction, and while settling a bit in his first game back looked better in the second. And he says he feels good. Progress. Rose and his teammates didn't have the best week on the court. They lost to the Cavs in a game they were behind for the final 3 quarters, then collapsed against the cruddy Magic, then saw themselves down 19 to the Heat before finally taking care of business. Whether it's a change in position or a nasty combination of age+injury, Joakim Noah hasn't been the same player this year. Things are simultaneously...

Grading Derrick Rose in his return vs. Magic

For the most part, I was pleased with what I saw from Rose in his first game back in 6 weeks. Yes, he played slightly hesitant. Like on this example below, where I thought Derrick could've perhaps put pressure on the defense and drag Jimmy's defender towards him for a drive-and-kick, but instead he settles for a three: And then on this example where I thought Derrick had the opportunity to use a floater. But instead, Rose runs the play and passes to Mike Dunleavy who is hidden behind a couple of trees, but winds up in the spot where that giant circle is. Also, I probably should...

Bulls vs. Magic final score: Orlando sucks the life out of Derrick Rose's return

The Bulls blew it in the second half against the Magic on Wednesday night. The return of Derrick Rose should have been a happy occasion. The Bulls had an Eastern Conference bottom-feeder in the Orlando Magic on the schedule and the five games left in the regular season seemed like the perfect trial run for Rose before the playoffs started. When the Bulls opened up a 15 point lead in the second quarter, this looked like it would be a good night. Unfortunately, things are rarely easy against the Magic, a team that has provided the Bulls with a fair amount of trouble over the last two seasons....

Derrick Rose set to return Wednesday vs. Magic

Rose will be on a 20-minute restriction.
