That made his upbeat assessment about the state of his game, his mind and his body all the more important. "I'm loving the way that I'm playing," Rose said. "Of course missing shots, that's part of the game. But just conditioning-wise and how I've been playing defense and low turnovers the last couple of games, I'm loving it. I feel like me picking up fullcourt, really getting into people, running the team (helps) me knock this rust off along the way for the regular season. "I've exceeded my expectations. I'm not sore. My knees are good. I know a lot of people are concerned about that, but I think I'm playing well." Chicago Tribune

What did you see out of Derrick Rose when you were working out? Patrick Beverley: He's super strong. That's the first thing I seen with him. He's super strong, he put on some good weight. I think the day I seen him and I seen how big he was, I think the same night I went to go lift weights ‘cause I thought, you know, I saw how big he was. Just his strength, his explosiveness, the way he moves off pick-and-roll and how hard he works in the weight room. So it's a Chicago family, man. Me, him, Will Bynum, Tony Allen, we're all real close and working with each other has been a blessing this summer. CBSSports.com

Marc Stein: Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski tells ESPN after New Zealand win that current plan is to play Derrick Rose next 2 nights as well with no rest. Many wondered if DRose would be rested for one of Team USA's three games-in-three nights but to this point staff feels he's progressing well Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, meanwhile, remains adamant that the Team USA staff is quite comfortable having included Rose as part of its final 12-man World Cup roster, even if he's available to them only as a role player as he works his way back to full speed. "I think basically we're waiting for Derrick to have kind of a bust-out game," Colangelo said. "And if that were to happen, I think he'd take off from that point." ESPN.com
