(CBS) — Derrick Rose said Tuesday that he has no return date, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.
“I don’t have a (return) date, to tell you the truth,” Rose told the Tribune. “I’m just taking my time. I haven’t taken any steps back. I’m getting stronger every day. I did every workout possible. The workouts are getting a lot easier. I’m moving in the right direction.”
Rose also said that he has not suffered any setbacks and isn’t sure if he will return this year.
“I’m waiting to that day where I feel normal. Until then, I will just wait. I haven’t had any pressure from the organization. No one has to push me to go out there to play,” Rose told the Tribune before a practice at UCLA.
Tuesday marked 10-months since Rose had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. The Bulls have 19 regular season games remaining.
