The Chicago Bulls are hopeful Derrick Rose will be playing again in April, a time frame that would have him ready for the postseason. The 2010-11 MVP had outpatient surgery Friday morning to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, and was able to bear weight when it was over, Bulls general manager Gar Forman said. Rose is expected to begin rehab immediately, with a recovery of four to six weeks. USA Today Sports

And now he’s getting ready to return after a 10-game absence. Biyombo participated in practice Thursday at TD Garden. There’s a small chance he’ll be cleared to play Friday against the Boston Celtics, but more likely his return will come Sunday night against the Magic in Orlando, Fla. Biyombo showed progress in the 13 games he started while Al Jefferson recovered from a groin strain. He had three points/rebounds double-doubles in that span, but Biyombo said those numbers weren’t the best measure of how he can impact a game. Charlotte Observer
