Behind the closed doors of the Advocate Center, where (Derrick) Rose participated in the contact portions of practice Monday for the first time since his Feb. 27 arthroscopic right knee surgery, a simple truth resonates.

Rose, on track to return in the four- to six-week timeline offered by team physicians and officials, scrimmaged full court for two 10-minute sessions.

Friday marks five weeks since team physician Brian Cole removed a small portion of Rose’s right meniscus. When Rose returns depends on how his body reacts to taking the contact.
