The Bulls have cleared Derrick Rose to play extended minutes if needed, sources said.

“I feel great,” Rose said recently of his health.

Initially, the Bulls’ medical staff limited Rose because he was returning from back-to-back, season-ending knee surgeries and he had played just 10 NBA games in the last two seasons. But Rose has started to string games together. And while it’s unlikely his average minutes per game will increase significantly, coach Tom Thibodeau has been given the green light to play Rose more.
