Chicago Bulls Rumors
Derrick Rose is expected to rejoin the Bulls on Wednesday as he continues to recover from a fractured left orbital, according to Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. “Follow up [exam] went very well,” Hoiberg said after Saturday’s practice. “They’ve advised him to continue to let that sight heal and they think the best way to do that is for him to stay at home at this time. We plan on him being back Wednesday morning.”
“Everything’s the same on that [timeline],” Hoiberg said of the initial plan of having Rose sit out two weeks. “After those two weeks he should be able to resume full activity. It’s just these two weeks he’ll be very inactive. They don’t really want him doing much of anything except walking back and forth, just getting a lot of rest. And not doing anything where he can dilate his blood vessels is kind of what we heard.”
Noah has taken to going to bed early. “Very underrated,” he calls it with a laugh. When he rises bright-eyed in the morning, it is daily yoga that greets him. “Just trying to channel all my energy into basketball right now. I owe that to my teammates,” Noah said. “It’s definitely part of growing up.
“When you play in the NBA at this level, there are a lot of distractions. Not all of them are bad; you just have access to a lot. Some of the things might be important to you. I want to make this everything right now and worry about all the other stuff later.”
