According to a report from ESPN Chicago, injured Bulls point guard Derrick Rose was in Alabama on Tuesday to visit with Dr. James Andrews. Rose wanted Andrews to check out his knee and make sure everything looks good.

The rehabilitation is going well and Rose made the trip just to have the renowned surgeon, who's worked on many athletes, take a look, according to a source.
