Rose has been out of the game for more than a year since injuring his knee and undergoing surgery on May 12, 2012. The Chicago ‘Bulls’ player considered returning to play in this year’s series of playoffs but decided to remain out to ensure a full recovery. “[My teammates know] I’m putting everything I have on trying to come back as fast as possible. Just trying to be smart with the whole situation. Just taking my time,” explained Derrick during a recent press conference.
Derrick Jr. is Rose and girlfriend Mieka Reese’s only child together.
