Derrick Rose continues to practice with the Chicago Bulls without limitations, and according to Coach Tom Thibodeau, it’s up to Rose whether or not he will play this season.
A team source told ESPN Chicago that Rose’s doctor has cleared him to play in games.
Rose is telling the team he won’t play until he can “dunk confidently off his left foot.”
He began taking full contact on his surgically-repaired left knee several weeks ago.
Rose was cleared for five-on-five full court scrimmaging in mid-February.
