Rose set to make return from latest knee injury

The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose is returning from his latest knee injury.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says Rose will start Wednesday night against the Magic, his first appearance since Feb. 23. He has missed 20 games since undergoing a minor operation Feb. 27 on his right knee.

Thibodeau says Rose is expected to play about 20 minutes. Guard Kirk Hinrich also is returning after missing two games because of a hyperextended left knee.

A torn meniscus in his right knee sidelined Rose most of last season. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the 2012 playoff opener.

The Bulls also visit Miami on Thursday, host Philadelphia on Saturday and visit Brooklyn on Monday before finishing the regular season at home against Atlanta on April 15.
