Derrick Rose: ‘I’m going to be all right’
Derrick Rose has stayed quiet since his season — and the Chicago Bulls’ title aspirations — was cut short by a knee injury in the playoffs, but the 2010-11 MVP surfaced in a YouTube video posted Friday, telling fans not to worry about him.
“Hopefully you’ll see me back out there,” Rose said in the video. “My biggest concern is don’t worry about me. I know I’m going to be all right. I know that I’m healthy, I’m positive, I believe in God, so I should be back there on the court soon, and I hope that you support not only me but the Bulls.”
Rose tore his ACL in Game 1 of the Bulls’ first-round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 28. He had surgery on May 12, and has kept a low profile since.
