After being cleared by doctors a little over a week ago, Derrick Rose said he wouldn’t return until he could confidently dunk off of his injured left leg. However, after recent workouts, his hamstrings have been tight so he wants to get that taken care of before he thinks about returning.
Many people look at Adrian Peterson and are hoping Rose will be just as productive. Peterson came back just over 8 months after tearing his ACL and was eight yards shy of breaking the single season rushing record. I think Rose is aware that all the pressure will be on him when he returns, so he’s making sure he is absolutely 100% before he steps back on the court.
