Derrick Rose: (Knee) Taking Full Contact In Practice
Update: Rose (knee) is taking "full contact" in practice, ESPN Chicago reports. "He can do all the cutting, he can do shooting, he can go off the dribble," coach Tom Thibodeau said.

Recommendation: Thibodeau further relayed that the sole aspect remaining in Rose's comeback is getting more reps and gearing up for game situations. While situations that he faces in practice cannot imitate what he will face in a game, the fact that Rose is able to handle all contact in drills is a nice development in his recovery. All signs point to him returning around the All-Star break, but it is still unclear when exactly he'll be able to take the court.
