Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will participate in 5-on-5 practices after the All-Star Break and the team will determine when he can return to action after having ACL surgery on his left knee last May.

Rose said on Monday that he is still "far away" from returning and it could be a couple of weeks before he will play in his first game of the season. Rose suffered the injury on April 28 during the Bulls' first-round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

"One of the issues we've faced with the way the season is is you don't always have five-on-five practices, where you get up and down the floor, and that's basketball, and you have to be able to play that way," Bulls executive vice president John Paxson said on ESPN Radio. "Coming out of this break we're going to have some of those, so I do believe that coming out after the All-Star break where guys get some days off and then they come back we're going to have some practices where (coach Tom Thibodeau) is going to be able to get them going up and down and Derrick is going to be a part of those, and we'll see how his body responds."
