Derrick Rose's return to the basketball court may be imminent.
Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of Team USA, revealed during an ESPNU College Basketball podcast with host Andy Katz that he thinks the Chicago Bulls star will be at the team's training camp this summer, via ESPN.com:
We expect him to be there that last week of July when we're choosing the team in Vegas. He can't make the team unless he's ready to go full bore. And knowing Derrick I would think he'll be ready, and hopefully he'll be 100 percent.
Rose would be one of 28 players selected for possible inclusion on Team USA ahead of the World Cup of Basketball, which will begin in August. That list will then be culled to 12 for the tournament itself.
No matter the situation, Bulls fans will be happy to hear that Rose might be healthy in the very near future. He's not all that far removed from the torn meniscus that wiped out the remainder of his 2013-14 season in November.
Being a part of Team USA's training camp in July would likely put him on schedule to be ready for the 2014-15 regular season.
Given everything that's happened to Rose over the last few years, Chicago will no doubt want to take every precaution necessary to ensure that its star point guard will be back to his old self as quickly as possible.
