(CBS) — Derrick Rose said he would be willing to come back and play limited minutes if he feels he is ready to play, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.

“I wouldn’t mind at all,” Rose told the Tribune. “Of course I want to play more. But it’s not that big. I’m going to play whenever I’m ready. I don’t care if it’s 15 or 40 (minutes). I just love the game too much. Like I said, I’m just waiting and praying about it. And hopefully I’ll be out there soon.”

Rose tore his left ACL 11 months ago in a playoff game against the Philadelphia 76’s.
