Bulls fans couldn’t get much worse news than what the Trib reported today about Derrick Rose:
“It’s going to be tough, I’ll tell you that,” Rose said. “I’m like an old man. I gotta wait 20, 30 minutes into practice to get loosened up. And it gets stiff when I stop playing.”
Pressed on how many minutes he thought would be realistic, Rose backtracked a bit into vagueness.
“At least 20,” he said. “I just want to play more. I don’t care if it’s 5 or 10. I just want to be out there. It’s up to (the medical staff). Right now, I’ll play whatever minutes they want me to play.”
I’m always jacked for a new season to begin. But this certainly puts a slight kink into that enthusiasm.
