Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is ahead of schedule for his return from knee injury, according to team doctors: reported Tuesday that Rose traveled to Alabama to consult with famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews. But Cole, the head team physician for the Bulls, noted that it was actually a therapist in Andrews' office with whom Rose is working. Cole said the trip to Alabama had been scheduled before Rose's surgery. Andrews was not in the office nor will he meet with the 23-year-old All-Star, Cole said.

"Derrick is ahead of schedule," Cole said in a phone conversation Wednesday night. "This was part of the plan established before surgery. This was not a consultation with another physician, but rather it's working with another therapist in collaboration with the Bulls' training staff."

Cole also brushed aside speculation that Rose has had a setback in the process.

"Nothing could be further from the truth," Cole said. "He's ahead of schedule. [The rehab] is a way to keep things fresh for Derrick, to help give him some variety.

Here is good news not only for Bulls fans, but basketball fans in general. Derrick Rose is such a great player, and an exciting point guard to watch, it sucked to see him get injured. The doctors had initially predicted Rose to be back within a year, or possibly miss the entire 2013 season. It now looks like we will be seeing him back on the NBA courts sooner rather than later.
