Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman told ESPN 1000 Thursday that point guard Derrick Rose is "right on schedule" in his progression rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered in last season's NBA playoffs.

"He's doing great, and he's right on schedule," Forman said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "He's attacked this rehab and has been very focused, and we're really pleased with where he is right now.

"But it's a process and it's a long process. It's still too early to pinpoint an exact time when he'll be back, but everything as of right now is right on schedule, and he's doing terrific. And when he's ready to step on the floor when he's at 100 percent he'll be back on the floor, and we're optimistic he'll be back at some point this year."

Rose underwent surgery in May on his torn ACL, but the prognosis for his return ranged anywhere from eight to 12 months. He tore his ACL in the closing minutes of the Bulls' Game 1 playoff series win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

In July, The Chicago Tribune reported that Rose could be out until March.
