Derrick Rose can dunk again

Monday February 25th, 2013

Although there is still no timetable for his return, there is now an encouraging video of Derrick Rose dunking again. He has said that 5-on-5 drills and dunking are some of the last hurdles he needs to clear in rehab.

Last Wednesday, Rose participated in his second 5-on-5 scrimmage and faced no setbacks. Tom Thibodeau said Rose will need to practice for a while before he's cleared to play. After getting crushed 102-72 by the Thunder on Sunday night, the Bulls could benefit from getting Rose back on the court soon.
