That's good news ahead of what may be a pivotal game for seeding in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Rose returned April 8 after a 12-game absence related to a groin injury, and it was in that return game that he hurt the ankle. He sat out Tuesday night's win over the Knicks.

Chicago is 28-7 with Rose and 16-7 without him this season.
