Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose is getting closer to returning to the court following ACL surgery back in May.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau revealed after practice Tuesday that Rose is now taking “predictable contact” and the next step for the star is regular practice.

Per CSN Chicago: “Obviously it’s knowing what’s coming and so, he’s handled that part great. He’s done a little one-on-one, and that’s coming around. But everyone has to be patient,” the coach explained after Tuesday’s afternoon session at the Berto Center. “The next step will be a regular practice and he hasn’t done that yet, so once he does that, you’ll know he’s getting closer.”

Unfortunately, there is still no official timetable for the return of D-Rose.

I think the biggest concern has to be making sure he is completely healthy before he returns. Whenever that may be.
