Bulls’ Derrick Rose says he has no date set to return this season

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose [1] said in an interview with USA Today posted Tuesday that he has no target date for his return to the court, and indicated he might [2] miss the rest of the season.

Rose tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season in the playoffs against the 76ers and has missed the entire 2012-13 season.

“I don’t have a set date,” Rose told USA Today. “I’m not coming back until I’m 110 percent. Who knows when that can be? It can be within a couple of weeks. It could be next year. It could be any day. It could be any time. It’s just that I’m not coming back until I’m ready.”

Rose said that right now he’s “probably in the high 80s. Far, far away.”

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau [3] said there has never been a specific date when Rose was expected back in the game.

“To me, it’s why we’ve taken the approach that we have,” Thibodeau said. There’s no timetable. It’s when he’s ready. We’re not measuring it against someone else’s timetable. It’s just this is Derrick. When he’s ready, he will go.”
