Good news, Bulls fans: DERRICK ROSE HAS BEEN REPORTEDLY CLEARED TO PLAY AGAIN! YAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

Before you get too excited, though, there's something that you should know. Rose has been cleared but he is not ready to return to the Bulls lineup just yet. According to a team source who spoke with ESPN Chicago today, Rose has told the team that he will not make his long-awaited return until he can dunk—and, more importantly, dunk confidently—off of his left foot. The source also said that Rose is trying to work through the psychological issues that come along with suffering an injury like a torn ACL and then returning to the court right now.

All of that being said, we still have absolutely no idea when D-Rose will be back. But, the Bulls seem to think that he could be ready to go by the middle of the month. Who's excited?
