Derrick Rose won't go on Bulls' road trip

David Banks-US PRESSWIRE

Derrick Rose continues to rehab from a torn ACL without a timetable for his return.

Derrick Rose will not accompany the Chicago Bulls on their five-game road trip, according to Jesse Rogers of ESPNChicago.com. The team said earlier in the season that Rose would occasionally travel with the team, but coach Tom Thibodeau decided that the trip could be too long and distracting.

The team would rather have Rose focus on his rehab from a torn ACL that he suffered during last year's playoffs. There is still no timetable for his return, and he has not practiced with the team. Rose has been shooting, and only resumed cutting on Monday, which was the next step in his recovery.

In his four-year NBA career, Rose has averaged 21 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. So far this season the Bulls are 4-3 without their $16 million point guard. Luol Deng leads the team in scoring with 18.9 points per game. Kirk Hinrich, Nate Robinson, and Marquis Teague have filled in at point guard.
