Tim Keeney@@t_keenContributor IOctober 31, 2013

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, fresh off a long-awaited return (and that may be putting it lightly), is reportedly a game-time decision for Thursday night's contest against the New York Knicks. 

The Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson and ESPN's Nick Friedell provided the details:

DRose didn't do shootaround, gametime decision vs. Knicks. Thibodeau said its not knee but his "body."

Rose says he has neck soreness. 'I should be fine.' Hopeful to play tonight.

Rose is starting in Thursday's lineup against the Knicks.
