Columnist David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune wrote a piece on Wednesday that questioned whether or not Derrick Rose's (knee) marketing team has more control over his return than the Bulls do.
We don't normally blurb opinion pieces, but qualified beat writer K.C. Johnson (of the same newspaper) retweeted the report without comment which at a minimum suggests he isn't distancing himself from his colleague's ideas. The piece suggests that Rose isn't returning as fast as he possibly can, and it will be interesting to see if this story catches any momentum or if it fizzles out. Whether Rose plays this season or not remains up for debate after Tuesday's developments.
