DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose still isn't sure when he'll come back from his knee injury.
The former MVP point guard says he's still experiencing some soreness in his surgically repaired left knee but hasn't experienced any setbacks. He also says he hasn't set a target date for his return, adding it "could be tomorrow and I feel like I can play next game. Nobody knows but God."
Rose spoke at Thursday's shootaround before Chicago hosted Portland.
Rose hasn't played since he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last year's playoff opener against Philadelphia, an injury that sent the top-seeded Bulls toward a first-round exit. He had surgery in May, and his status has been a running soap opera surrounding this team.
