For weeks now, (Derrick) Rose has been playing five-on-five, taking full contact on his surgically-repaired knees and preparing to attend USA Basketball’s late-July minicamp in Las Vegas in the hopes of making the World Cup team that will compete in Spain in late August through early September.
According to three people who either have played against Rose or witnessed his workouts, who requested anonymity, the 2011 NBA most valuable player is displaying both explosion and speed in games. Of course, Rose must prove he can remain healthy over the course of an 82-game schedule after playing in just 50 regular- and postseason games over the last three seasons. Team physician Brian Cole re-attached Rose’s right meniscus during surgery, which created a longer rehabilitation process but is the preferred method for limiting long-term issues.
