(WSCR) Maybe Derrick Rose’s torn ACL is his body’s way of telling him to slow down.

All season long, Rose has been hampered by injury after injury. As he rehabs from his latest set back, one Bulls expert said it will be vital for the reigning MVP to listen to his body.

“Even the athletes I’ve spoken to that have come back from injuries have told me that patience is the key,” Bulls radio play-by-play man Chuck Swirsky told The McNeil and Spiegel Show. “For people to expect that it’s going to take eight months, 10 months, seven months, I don’t know. I’m not a doctor. All I can tell you is that I hope he comes back and he listens to his body. After that, he’ll probably try and navigate the best way he can. I’m hoping he returns to be the same player.

Swirsky also said he doesn’t blame Tom Thibodeau for Rose’s injury.

“No blame, I think it just happened,” he said. “It’s unfortunate.”
