Derrick Rose injury: Bulls star begins cutting on surgically-repaired knee

David Banks-US PRESSWIRE

The next step in Derrick Rose's recovery, cutting on his surgically-repaired knee, began recently.

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose started cutting on his surgically-repaired recently, the next major step in his rehabilitation from a torn ACL, as head coach Tom Thibodeau tells K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. There's still no timetable set for the former MVP's return, but this is a positive development for Rose.

While there's been discussion of the possibility that Rose misses the entire 2012-13 season, he continues to make steady progress in his return. If Thibodeau can keep the Bulls in contention during his absence, Rose will likely have a tough time saying no if the opportunity to take the court arises.

Back on Oct. 30, Bulls V.P. of basketball operations John Paxson said that beginning to cut on the surgically-repaired knee would be the next step in Rose's recovery, but there's still much to be done before he's ready. The point guard underwent surgery to repair his knee on May 12, so he's only seven months into his rehab.
