(CBS) Star Bulls guard Derrick Rose isn’t close to returning to practice yet as he recovers from a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, ESPNChicago.com and the Tribune reported Friday afternoon.

“He can shoot,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said, according to ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell. “He’s doing some jogging on a treadmill. He’s coming along, still got to be patient, just go step by step. Nothing close to practicing.”

Bulls executive vice president John Paxson emphasized earlier this week that the team expects Rose to be out for the season.

Without Rose, the Bulls have done well to stay afloat. They’re 23-22, in fifth place in the Eastern Conference but just one game out of third place.
