Report: Derrick Rose Dunking


Report: Derrick Rose Dunking


via CSN Chicago:


As much as we wish we had footage of a fully recovered D Rose dunking, unfortunately we don’t. However CSN Chicago cites sources that confirm Rose has been doing some drills full speed and even dunking “occasionally”. That’s great news!

As far as what Rose has been doing in practice, it’s much of the same as what has been previously — walking through “dummy” offensive sets, shooting drills — but according to a person familiar with the proceedings, he’s also dunking the basketball occasionally, going full speed when it’s called for and participating in staples of Bulls practices, such as defensive slides and closeout drills.

…one of the next steps, traveling with the team on the road, should occur on one of the Bulls’ upcoming January road trips, according to multiple people with knowledge of Rose’s recovery, including the player himself, told CSNChicago.com (the All-Star point guard and this writer happened to be leaving the Berto Center simultaneously after the team’s shootaround Saturday morning).
