It looks like Derrick Rose will be in the Chicago Bulls’ starting lineup on Tuesday in the season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Rose made his first appearance of the preseason on Friday night, playing just over 10 minutes in the Bulls’ 103-102 victory win over the Dallas Mavericks. He had eight points, hitting 4 of 6 shots, the first a driving left-handed layup, and finished with one assist as he pushed the Bulls offense into high gear.

Asked if he thought he would be playing Tuesday, Rose said: “Who knows? I don’t want to jinx myself. It’s improving every day. So it looks like it’s a go for me.” First-year Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said there was no reason not to think that Rose would play Tuesday unless he had a setback in the next three days.

[Tyronn] Lue is scheduled to interview for the job on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. One has to wonder if he thinks his meeting could just be a formality and/or insurance in case former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, whose job it is to lose, doesn’t accept the job.

Sources have been saying for weeks that the job is [Mike] D’Antoni’s to turn down. They say he’s the guy the ownership group wants. One source even said the 69-year-old would have to bomb his interview with the Sixers owners not to be offered the job.

Jerami Grant wants to be back with the Denver Nuggets next season. Whether that happens may be up to Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly.

Grant, who is expected to opt out of his player option, according to a league source, made himself invaluable throughout the Nuggets’ postseason run. When the Nuggets traded a first-round pick last summer for Grant, they hoped he’d provide the defensive versatility that he ultimately did.
