    Derrick Rose hasn't spoken publicly in months, but his first interview since tearing his ACL will be aired on Wednesday night.

    Derrick Rose has been spotted a few times since undergoing knee surgery in May, but the quiet and unassuming NBA superstar hasn’t spoken publicly in months.

    That’s all going to change Wednesday as Rose finally breaks his silence to CSN Chicago’s Bulls beat reporter, Aggrey Sam.

    Sam caught up with Rose this summer in Los Angeles and the South Side native opened up about his injury, his rehab, the Bulls new roster and the Miami Heat winning the 2012 NBA Championship.
    Comcast SportsNet will air the interview in two parts Wednesday and Thursday as part of their SportsNet Central programming. The full interview will also appear on CSNChicago.com along with Sam discussing the conversations that he had with Rose.
