After suffering from an unfortunate (and quite frankly devastating) season-ending injury (torn right medial meniscus) Chicago Bulls point guard and MVP, Derrick Rose is finally of his crutches and is making some progress in his recovery. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau gave an update on Rose and his progress as he goes through the recovery phase of yet another heart-crushing injury:
He’s coming along fine. He’s off the crutches. He’s doing more and more, but he still has a long way to go,” Thibodeau said about Rose. “But he’ll probably start traveling in the next couple weeks. But he’s doing great.
Trust me, any type of Rose recovery news that is positive needs to be shared! It really is sad to see how many people have pounded on him just because of this latest injury. Do we really think that Rose asks to be injured? I’m telling you, people are heartless out there (and selfish)! Rose wants to be out there playing for his fans, but his unfortunate set of injuries over the last few seasons hasn’t allowed him to do so. All I’m saying is, we need to lay off him! Patience is the key right now for all the Bulls fans and those who are fans of what Rose brings to the NBA. Before we know it, the youngest MVP in NBA history will be back, and stronger than ever!
