Joe Crowley of the Chicago Sun Times:

According to an NBA source, while ‘‘The Return’’ to the court for NBA games is still up in the air for Rose, the all-everything point guard could be just weeks away from practicing with the Bulls again…

‘‘That’s the belief that a couple of [the Bulls’] players are under,’’ the source said.

Rose has been expected to be able to play in games by February, but that has been inferred more than actually stated. Even if the Bulls receive the ultimate Christmas present of getting him back on the practice court just before Dec. 25, it doesn’t mean he’s necessarily ahead of that February schedule — or behind it.

I’m sure I share the cognitive dissonance of all Bulls fans when I say “Get well soon D. Rose; and don’t rush back.”

In related news: Ricky(-tikki) Rubio zipped a pass through a teammates legs in practice and feels good, and we might see Hey-mon Shumpert sometime in January.

Guess who’s bizzack?
“Derrick Rose said at this morning’s shoot around that if he does not play tonight against the Celtics at the United Center he expects to play Sunday when the Bulls travel to New York to take on the Knicks.”

He’s doing his training, but he’s not playing full-court basketball yet. We’re taking it as slow and as cautious as we can with him. He’s anxious and he has a ton of energy, but I think he gets it. We don’t have bodyguards on him to keep him from working too hard. He’s on the program with the staff. We don’t have timetables on this. We are going week to week and we’ll make a decision on where he is.’’
