Bulls' Rose says sitting out was 'right decision'

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose says he's still recovering from knee surgery and vows to show sitting out last season was the right decision.

In an interview posted Wednesday on the team's website, Rose said he had to be selfish in his rehab as he tried to work his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and that sitting out was "one of the hardest things" he's experienced.

He also said fans will understand it was "the right decision" when they see him back on the court.

Rose hasn't played since he crumbled to the court near the end of the 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia, sending the top-seeded Bulls to a first-round exit. He had surgery on May 12 that year.
