Derrick Rose's injuries, a look back at the downward spiral

Derrick Rose's injuries, a look back at the downward spiral
So I've been in many arguments recently about whether Derrick Rose could come back healthy or not, and I was looking to find somewhere that documented the complete Derrick Rose injury history only to find that I couldn't find such a place.  Well, this might not be the most complete one possible, but I'm going to try to cover the important aspects...

Derrick Rose nearing recovery or not?

Rose was seen doing some sprints at the Berto center causing speculation that he might come back soon. You can do a sprint without an ACL, so I wouldn't take much from this. However, Ric Bucher noted Rose has been dunking for months which is more interesting...

Bulls should (likely will) sit Rose against the Celtics

Bulls should (likely will) sit Rose against the Celtics
Rose will likely be listed as a game time decision. He practiced the past two days, and Tom Thibodeau said that he'd see how Derrick Felt today, but one quote summed it up for me. "I felt good, but me playing (Thursday) I don't know. I'm able to run a little bit more, but not at my top speed...

How long will it take to build chemistry?

How long will it take to build chemistry?
Richard Hamilton finally returned from injury against the Rockets, playing with a rather bulky looking shoulder pad on his right arm. He didn't play particularly well. He'll need time to shake off the rust, but more importantly, the Bulls will need time to learn to play with Rip too...

Derrick Rose thinks he'll play in the regular season - panic time?

Derrick Rose thinks he'll play in the regular season - panic time?
K.C. Johnson asked Derrick Rose whether he'll play in the regular season, and Derrick Rose's response was "I think so". The words of an athlete frustrated by constantly being asked about his injury or the words of one constantly frustrated by the injury? Sadly, the later feels more likely...

Bulls win division, lose Boozer, and gain on Boston

Lots of things happened last night, some important, some not important.    The Bulls clinched the division for the first time since the Jordan era with a win over Charlotte and an Indiana loss.   To clinch this early is fairly amazing, but it says more about the weakness of the division than the strength...

Bulls just treading water until Noah gets back

With a nasty virus running through the Thonus household, I missed all but the closing minutes of the game.  However, while our worst fears of Joakim Noah’s absence haven’t been realized, the team clearly badly misses its star center.   The Bulls are winless on the road in 2011, they’ve dropped three games all three are...

How will the Bulls cope without Noah? Most likely, just fine.

Obviously the Bulls aren’t going to be better off without Noah.  They’ll be hurt by the lack of depth.  They’ll miss his rebounding, help defense, and hustle.   However, all is not lost.   Not even close.   The Bulls have quality depth to get through this period, and they’ll better develop Asik through the process.  Also, they...

Boozer back at practice; may debut against Magic

Per KC Johnson: “I felt I had a pretty good day of practice,” Boozer said. “My hand felt pretty good. There were a couple of times it got hit, which was good to see how that felt. It was a little sore. “But my wrist is getting a lot stronger, which is important to me.... Read more »

Boozer to return to practice Monday; could play Dec 1st

Per K.C. Johnson: Carlos Boozer said it’s “100 percent” he will participate in Monday’s practice at the Berto Center, his first contact since fracturing the fifth metacarpal on his right hand on Oct. 2. Boozer shot jumpers and lifted weights before Friday’s game against the Nuggets, his second straight day of more intense workouts. “It’s... Read more »
