Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose hasn’t ruled out coming back before the end of the season.
Rose talked to the media for the first time since his knee injury last month.
He tore the meniscus in his right knee on November 22, but won’t start rehab for three weeks.
It’s the second time in his young career that Rose has suffered a severe knee injury.
He missed all of last season and isn’t expected to return this year.
But Rose says he may be back for the playoffs if the Bulls get there.
