It's been a few months, and fans were getting used to Derrick Rose being out. Joakim Noah is the man right now and Rose wasn't even back from his ACL injury for that long to begin with. Rose was ruled out for the season in November after suffering a torn meniscus.

Rose is known for taking his time to make a comeback, but the Daily News mentioned that he may be back by playoff time.

It’s no joke — the Bulls really are expecting Derrick Rose to make it back from his latest knee injury in time for the playoffs.

It sounds good on the surface. But with the Bulls holding steady and Rose already showing himself to be injury-prone, is it really worth it?
