Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is progressing in his rehabilitation, and the team expects him to return at 100 percent, general manager Gar Forman said Thursday night. "He's making great progress," Forman said on ESPN Chicago 1000's "GameNight." "When he had the injury, we were very lucky that the meniscus could be repaired. He'll come back and be 100 percent -- there's no question in any of our minds. But because it was able to be repaired, he'll have great stability in that knee and it will take away the chances that it becomes arthritic towards the end of his career." ESPN.com

Gallinari will bounce back and forth between Denver and Italy most of the summer. He's not sure whether he will practice with the Italian national team. Doctors would like him to do that to help him prepare for Denver's training camp. "When we talk about the schedule, I'll be ready for training camp," Gallinari said. "By the end of May, I'll be able to do most of the activities that I can possibly do. So in the summer I'll be able to practice a little bit with the national team just to get a feel." Denver Post
