Derrick Rose Injury: Bulls PG Discusses Groin Injury

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose told reporters over the weekend that he isn't sure when he'll be able to return to the court even though his groin is feeling better lately, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago. He also noted that the injury, which he sustained against the New York Knicks on March 12, has proven to be worse than initially thought.

(I'm feeling) way better. (When the injury occurred) I was actually bleeding, my groin was bleeding, but now it's healed. It's just scar tissue and it's pretty hard trying to get that to move around, it's going to take little time.

It appears that Rose isn't making much contact yet in practices, mostly working in the swimming pool and on set jump shots. Given his aggressive approach as a player, it's hard to envision Rose looking similar if he's shying away from contact on the court.
