05:40 PM ET 04.20 | The Chicago Bulls have been holding out hope that star point guard Derrick Rose would return at some point this season, but head coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday morning that Rose is "most likely out" for the length of the playoffs. As he and the organization have for the past couple months, Thibodeau left the door open in case the Bulls go on a deep playoff run. But, at this point, all signs point to Rose rejoining the Bulls for next season's training camp. Rose injured his ACL in the waning minutes a playoff game against Philadelphia last season, and has spent the last 11 months rehabbing the injury. The former MVP has been practicing with the team for two months and has even looked explosive in warmups, but has declared himself unfit to play.

QUOTE(#1):

That was a no brainer. I hope Rose quits talking about it now.

LOL, every Rose has a thorn.
