Chicago Bulls fans can breathe a little more now knowing that their star player could make his return any day now to the team.  This according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.

It’s day-to-day. Day-to-day.  So whenever he’s ready, he’s ready.  We just want him to continue to improve, focus on his rehab, and then when he’s ready to go we’ll all know.  Everyone has to remain patient.

Patience is the key and it seems the Chicago Bulls are going to wait as long as it takes for him to comeback.  Besides, he is their franchise player.  Thibodeau went on to state that this does not mean that Rose will be suited up and playing tomorrow, or that a timetable is set in stone when he is to return.

Whenever he’s ready, he’s ready.  Nothing has changed for us.  For our team, I want them to continue to concentrate on improvement and our opponent.  And for Derrick I want him to continue to concentrate on his rehab.

We’re 60 games into this now, so I think going into the season we had a lot of question marks.  I think we have more answers now.  We figured out, I think, who we are.  We’re headed down the stretch, we’ve got to continue to improve and then we’ll go from there.

There you have it……day-to-day.
