K.C Johnson's post on Chicago Bulls | Latest updates on Sulia
DRose just passed 7-month mark from surgery. Rubio returned just shy of 9 months from his. Bulls preach patience.
“I don’t think (Rubio's return) has really anything to do with Derrick because I think each guy is different and separate,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “But I’m happy to see it for him. Ricky is a terrific player. And you hate to see anybody go down with that type of injury.
“Derrick is doing fine. We just have to be patient and let him keep doing the things he’s doing.”
Thibodeau said DRose remains "a ways" away from practicing. The Bulls gave an eight- to 12-month timeline following his May 12 surgery and is on record as saying they will take a conservative approach.
