Derrick Rose: (Knee) "Very Close" To Full Contact

Update: Rose (knee) is "very close" to taking full contact in practice, according to coach Tom Thibodeau, the Bulls' official Twitter page reports. "It could happen this week," Thibodeau said.

Recommendation: While a specific date hasn't been set, it sounds like Rose's return to full contact practice is around the corner. It's uncertain how long it will take Rose to get into game-shape, and there's no guarantee he'll be back before the All-Star break, but this is an encouraging development regardless.
