It's one (series) of small steps for him, but a giant leap for the struggling Chicago Bulls.
Point guard Derrick Rose was spotted at the Berto Center in Lake Forest, where the Bulls practice, running. Yes, running.
Rose tore his ACL last year during the first game of the NBA playoffs and has been sidelined ever since.
The knee injury forced the Bulls to recalibrate what could have been a championship contending team to wait for their star player to return.
Now that Rose is back on the practice court, hope springs eternal.
