(CBS) Bulls point guard Derrick Rose joined his team on the road Wednesday for the first time since he suffered a torn right meniscus Nov. 22.

Rose is out for the season with the injury, but now that he is off his crutches, the Bulls want him around the team as much as possible.

“It’s always good to have him around,” Kirk Hinrich told the Chicago Tribune. “Obviously, we would love to have him playing.”

The Bulls play the Magic in Orlando Wednesday night before traveling to Washington D.C. to face the Wizards Friday.
