Bulls at Warriors and the latest Derrick Rose return saga

So the Bulls face the Warriors tonight, and Tom Thibodeau noted that Derrick Rose was unlikely to play in the game against the Warriors. Rose officially listed as out, but his "day to day"ness seems more legitimate now than it has been in the past. The daily grind of Rose return news seems to generally have taken a positive spin.
