"When the time comes I just have to be ready and prove to the people here that I am ready to play. Who knows when that time is? If it's all year I might wait the whole year, so what? If I come back at the All-Star (break), so what?"
In his career, Rose has averaged 21.0 points per game and 6.9 assists per game in his four years for the Bulls.
