Rose medically cleared to play

Derrick Rose has been medically cleared to return from his ACL tear, according to a team source.

Rose informed teammates that he won't return to the lineup, however, until he can confidently dunk off his left foot.

Rose has been videotaped dunking off each foot, but more casually than he would during a game.

The Bulls are not pressuring Rose to return, according to a source, but remain confident he will return in mid-March.

Rose is now dealing with the psychological issue of trusting his body.

that's interesting about the psycological trust issue with his body. seems to me like that'd be the biggest factors for athletes coming back at a much different level than before. agression is half physical ability, half mental. hell, i'd say 20:80. I really hope he can get back to the old rose, because man was he awesome to watch

News is all like it's mental. He's having mental issues about his knee. You know who else they said that about? Yuuup... Greg Oden, They said his knee was fine and he just needed to get out there and run it off. Then Oden's knee exploded. Folks that want Derrick to play be trippin'.

If he's fine he'll play. Why would you risk it just for this year's playoffs? Rose is worth waiting for.
