Derrick Rose Practices 5 on 5

Bulls guard participates in 5-on-5 drills: report

Even though he won't be returning immediately after the All-Star break as was once speculated, Bulls guard Derrick Rose took a big step forward Monday in the rehabilitation of his knee.

Rose participated in five-on-five practice drills with his teammates for the first time since tearing his ACL, ESPN Chicago reported.

The team's medical staff will monitor how Rose's body responds to the increased workload.

Last week, Rose said he would be open to missing the entire season if he wasn't 110 percent.
