Derrick Rose Injury Update: Bulls PG Walking Without A Boot

Derrick Rose has been in California rehabbing his knee over the last couple of weeks, and according to his brother, the Bulls point guard is walking around without a brace.

"He's walking without a boot," Reggie [Rose] said. "He's way ahead of schedule.

"It's just keeping him focused, and we're not trying to rush him. Basically, just rehab, rehab, rehab. We haven't put nothing basketball in his face."

Rose is spending time in Los Angeles to relax and escape some of the attention he receives in Chicago, according to his brother.

Rose has been out of action since tearing an ACL in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs. He had surgery on May 12.
