The Bulls are 10-10 since Rose’s latest injury. With five games left in the season, Rose is going to have to produce. The team is currently 46-31 and have already clinched a playoff spot, but how the team finishes will impact their seed.
Depending on how the Bulls finish, there is a chance that the team could face the feared Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round.
Rose stated in a shootaround:
“I’ve been putting a lot of work in, busting my ass to get back. I’m just happy that I’m able to come back to a team where I think we’re playing all right basketball. I think defensively we’re playing good. Offensively, I shouldn’t have to worry about it, just come back and play the way I normally play.”
The Bulls play away against the Orlando Magic (24-53).
