Chicago Bulls InjuriesUp to the minute news on Chicago Bulls Injuries
Derrick Rose began his third rehabilitation after a knee surgery in the last 34 months Saturday and displayed full confidence he will return to action this season.
In case nobody got the message clearly enough when Bulls general manager Gar Forman announced Friday at the United Center that he expected Derrick Rose back in four to six weeks after successful knee surgery, the team issued a press release an hour later.
CHICAGO -- Joakim Noah was back in his comfort zone on Friday night. Without Derrick Rose (knee), Pau Gasol (illness) and Taj Gibson going down with an ankle injury after just nine minutes, the remaining Bulls had to pull together and do a little more. For Noah, that meant he was back in a familiar role as a "point center," a role he played extremely well over the last two years without Rose on the floor. With Noah back at the high post, he looked more confident on the floor racking up 11 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in a 96-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose underwent successful knee surgery, it was announced Friday. It's the next chapter in Rose's long odyssey with knee injuries that stretches back to the 2012 NBA Playoffs. There may be some cause for hope, however, as Bulls GM Gar Forman said he expects Rose to return later this season. While Bulls fans prepare to see their homegrown superstar endure another cycle of rehab, here's a brief timeline of how we got this far.
Derrick Rose suffered yet another knee injury, meaning another surgery and possibly the early end to yet another season for the Chicago Bulls star and former NBA MVP.

CHICAGO - The Bulls had a full team at practice Thursday, a rarity in a season full of injuries and restrictions. “It was great,” forward Mike Dunleavy said. “We had some extra subs at our scrimmage, not that they were used. But it was good having everybody out there and not seeing anybody on the sidelines sitting around. It was good for the spirit of the team.” Derrick Rose missed the team’s first post-All-Star practice on Wednesday night because of “travel issues,” but had full participation on Thursday.
Penny Hardaway can see the similarities between he and Derrick Rose. The former Orlando Magic star and fellow Memphis alumnus marveled at the freakish athleticism that Rose displayed before his first knee injury in April 2012. He empathized with Rose's circumstances after that point, having gone through his own knee problems at a similar point in his career. Now, as Rose tries to help lead the Chicago Bulls to a championship, Hardaway is hoping to watch Rose make it back to full health -- something Hardaway wasn't able to fully accomplish after knee injuries derailed his career.
NEW YORK -- LeBron James is convinced that Derrick Rose is going to return to MVP form in the future. After watching Derrick Rose go off for 30 points and seven assists in Thursday's loss to the Chicago Bulls, James believes that Rose is going to make his way all the back to an elite level after missing a majority of the last two and a half seasons because of two major knee injuries. "I think Derrick looked great last night," James said during Friday's All-Star media availability.

CHICAGO – Although Jimmy Butler did not participate in Chicago Bulls practice Wednesday, all the news was not bad when it came to his injured right shoulder.

Butler’s status for Thursday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers remains unknown, according to coach Tom Thibodeau.
