Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will have no restrictions when training camp starts this week for Team USA as the squad prepares for next month’s FIBA World Cup in Spain. 

Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski said he hasn’t seen Rose play yet, but that camp will be an opportunity for the Bulls guard, who is recovering from injury.

Rose has not played since November after having surgery to repair the medial meniscus in his right knee. He previously had anterior cruciate ligament surgery on his left knee in May 2012.

“No. No. None at all. Again, he hasn't played against this competition [in a while]. We have to watch that,” Krzyzewski said, via Yahoo! Sports. “But no. He says he's ready to go."

Team USA starts the 24-team tournament Aug. 30 against Finland. It also has games against Turkey (Aug. 31), New Zealand (Sept. 2), Dominican Republic (Sept. 3) and Ukraine (Sept. 4).
