Steve Kerr on what he expects to see from Derrick Rose in his latest return: “I have no idea,” Kerr said before Sunday’s game. “I haven’t paid close attention to him this year because he’s been in the East and haven’t seen much of him … but the main thing is I’m just pulling for him. I always hate when guys get injured; he’s been such a dynamic player in this league and I’m glad he’s getting an opportunity here. I want him to play well after tonight, but it seems like it’s a good spot for him, with Thibs and Jimmy Butler. So hopefully this will be a good landing spot for him and he can get things going again.”
