Chicago Bulls television color analyst Stacey King gets to look behind a curtain during practices the media can't lift, and from what King has seen, Derrick Rose's return is imminent.
"He's coming back. I don't know when. He's coming back," King said on "The Carmen & Jurko Show" on ESPN 1000 on Thursday. "He's coming back for this season.
"I saw him work out (Wednesday) in Sacramento," Stacey King said. "It was probably the most explosive I've seen him since he's been back. He looked really, really good. He was jumping off the (left) leg. He was working with coach Ron Adams. And he looked very, very explosive.'

This is great for owners of Rose as this could be a late spark for teams in the playoffs. It might take him a little time to get reacquainted on the floor, but with the talent he possesses, he should be placed into lineups instantly upon his return.
