After being chosen to the initial roster consisting of 28 players, Derrick Rose plans to play for Team USA in the 2014 Fiba Basketball World Cup in Spain according to ESPNChicago.com. In a statement provided by Team USA, Rose states:
“I’m looking forward to getting back on the court this summer and having the chance to represent our country. It’s an honor to play for Team USA and Coach K.”
Derrick Rose is advancing in his rehabilitation as he fights his way back from a second knee injury. Though some fans are holding on to the possibility of a spring comeback (including myself), it isn’t likely. The news that Derrick will be back on the court before the next season is refreshing.
