Derrick Rose will return soon, and we’ll see how long it’ll take him to get back to full strength.
Before the injury, Rose was arguably one of the league’s top five players and possibly the best point guard in the world. The Chicago native took home MVP honors in 2010-11, emerging as the Bulls’ biggest superstar since the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen era.
The Bulls have overachieved this season in Rose's absence, posting an impressive 29-20 record. However, they don't stand a chance at winning it all without their leader in the lineup.
It’s going to take Rose a while to shake off the rust, but once he does, look out.
What signs will indicate he’s back to full strength? You’ll know when he’s continuously making plays that force you to ask, "How in the world did he do that?”
