Price per head sportsbooks were very pleased to learn that Chicago Bulls star guard Derrick Rose was happy with the way that he performed in Saturday night’s preseason victory over the Indiana Pacers, and it was only a day after he played his first professional game in over 17 months.
“It feels great,” Rose said before Sunday’s practice. “I’m not sore or anything. My leg’s good. Just trying to stay focused and trying to take it one day at a time.”
Pay per head services saw that on Saturday night, Rose did not report any soreness in his left knee after scoring 13 points in 20 minutes.
“No soreness at all,” Rose said. “After the game it felt like I hadn’t even played so I guess that’s a good sign.”
Coach Tom Thibodeau and price per head sportsbooks also felt pleased with the player’s performance. He understands that the former MVP still has some rust to shake off, but was happy with how he responded after his first game.
“We’ll see when he gets out [to practice] — so far, so good,” Thibodeau said. “I thought he played well [Saturday] and we’ve been seeing it in practice so it was good to see it in a game. I thought he was real aggressive. As the game went on he got stronger and stronger.”
Thibodeau, Rose, and price per head sportsbooks were both worried with how he would work his way back into fitness but that does not seem to be an issue now.
On Saturday, Thibodeau joked that the player was upset when he was taken out in the third quarter with 7:07 left against the Indiana Pacers, and the coach is not expecting to see any changes in his schedule for Rose.
“The big thing was looking at his wind,” Thibodeau said. “He felt really good, he wanted to play more, which is good. We’re just going to take it day by day, and if he needs some rest we’ll give him more rest. It’s just step by step, don’t skip and steps. That’s all we want him to do.”
The player said that he did not talk to many people since Saturday, when he made his return.
