Bulls Win Behind Rose in Double OT, Lead Series 3-0NBA via Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Derrick Rose scored 34 points and Jimmy Butler added 24 as the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 in double overtime on Thursday night to take a 3-0 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series. Butler got the second overtime started in the right direction for Chicago, intercepting a backcourt pass from Giannis Antetokounmpo and hitting a layup. It set the tone for an 8-0 run that gave Chicago a 109-101 lead with 2:44 left to finally shake the Bucks. Rose missed a free throw with 4 seconds left in regulation that left the game tied. However, he scored six points in the second overtime, including a layup off an offensive rebound with 2:15 left for a 10-point lead. Antetokounmpo had 25 points and Khris Middleton added 18 for Milwaukee, which went scoreless for more than 6 minutes between the first and second overtimes. The Bulls will go for the sweep on Saturday in Game 4 in Milwaukee. No NBA team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Derrick Rose Set to Return Against Magic

Derrick Rose Set to Return Against Magic NBA via Chicago Bulls(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose is expected to return Wednesday night when his team takes on the Orlando Magic. Rose has missed the last six weeks after undergoing a meniscectomy on his right knee on Feb. 27. "[I'm] just happy that I'm able to come back to a team where I think we're playing all right basketball," Rose said Wednesday at the shootaround. "I think defensively we're playing good, so offensively I shouldn't have to worry about it, just come back and play the way that I normally play." Rose wasn't sure how much he'll play on Wednesday night, but isn't expecting to be in tip-top shape. "I'm going to be winded for sure," he said. "Just missing so many weeks, so many days, you're going to be winded. But that comes along with just coming back from surgery. And just not playing the game in a couple weeks." The Bulls went 10-10 during Rose's absence. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Bulls’ Derrick Rose Returns to Practice, Return Date Still Unknown

Bulls’ Derrick Rose Returns to Practice, Return Date Still Unknown NBA via Chicago Bulls(NEW YORK) -- With the NBA Playoffs roughly two weeks away, reinforcements could be coming for the Chicago Bulls as point guard Derrick Rose has returned to practice. Rose returned to full-contact activities in practice for the first time since he had surgery on February 27 to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. “He was good today,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said after practice. “A little winded, which is to be expected. Body on body, full court. But it will come. The more he does that, the faster it will come.” Despite the improvement in health, it's unknown just when Rose will return. “We can’t jump ahead,” Thibodeau added. “He’s been out a long time. So he’s got to work his way through it. We have to concentrate on getting everyone ready.” Recovering from his third knee surgery in as many years, the former MVP has missed 17 games this season. In 46 games this season, Rose is averaging 18.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game.

Bulls’ Derrick Rose Aiming to Return for the Playoffs, but Nothing Guaranteed

Bulls’ Derrick Rose Aiming to Return for the Playoffs, but Nothing Guaranteed NBA via Chicago Bulls(CHICAGO) -- According to again-injured Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, there is a "good chance" he'll make his return this season for the postseason. "I think so, that's the plan," Rose said. "Whenever I feel right, that's when I'm going to step back." Rose's most recent set-back came in late February when he aggravated the right medial meniscus, which he had repaired last season. "Oh, there's no pacing," he said. "Whenever I come back, I think I'm going to be ready to play the way I normally play. That's the smartest thing about being patient with everything that I'm doing, paying attention to my body, paying attention to details every day." Since tearing his ACL in the 2011-2012 playoffs and hasn't been the same player since. The former MVP hasn't appeared in more than 46 games in a season since the injury. The original timetable for Rose's return was about six weeks, which would put him in line to return for the postseason. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Bulls Guard Jimmy Butler Out 3-6 Weeks with Elbow Injury iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The hits keep coming for the Chicago Bulls as the team announced that guard Jimmy Butler will miss the next 3-6 weeks with an elbow injury.

Butler underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed a Grade 2/3 ulnar ligament sprain and small bone impaction injury to his left elbow, the team announced in a statement. Fortunately for Butler, he will not need to undergo surgery, and is hoping to be back in time for the playoffs. Now in his fourth NBA season, Butler has emerged as the leading scorer for the Bulls this season. In 55 games this season, Butler is averaging 20.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game.

Derrick Rose Begins Rehab on Knee One Day After Surgery

Derrick Rose Begins Rehab on Knee One Day After Surgery NBA via Chicago Bulls(CHICAGO) -- Just one day after undergoing surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose has already began his rehab for the injury. Rose suffered yet another setback on the court that has derailed his career, but he's determined to remain a key player. "He's been through two tough ones," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said. "I think he's gained confidence from that. The ACL knee is great and he knew [a re-tear] was a possibility going in. He's in a good place and he'll deal with it. He'll get past this." A former league MVP, Rose is expected to miss 4-6 weeks and both he and the team are optimistic he'll be able to return for the playoffs. The 26-year-old Rose has appeared in 46 games this season, his most since the 2010-2011 season. Prior to the injury, he was averaging 18.4 points, 5.0 assists, and 3.2 rebounds per game.

Rose has Knee Surgery, Should Miss 4-6 Weeks

Rose has Knee Surgery, Should Miss 4-6 Weeks Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose had successful knee surgery and should be able to return to the team in four to six weeks, Bulls general manager Gar Forman said Friday.The 24-year-old Rose has had surgeries on both of his knees in the past couple years. Those surgeries caused Rose to miss most of the past two seasons, but this one shouldn't keep the former MVP off the court as long."There's the old saying that surgery's minor as long as it's on somebody else," Forman said. "But in this case, in comparison to what Derrick's had to go through the last several years, this surgery really was minor."Rose tore his medial meniscus in his right knee for the second time in 15 months. The previous time Rose had surgery he missed most of the 2013-14 season. This time should prove to be less serious as Rose was able to walk out of the hospital after the surgery.Rose could also begin working out at the team's practice facility as soon as Saturday, according to Forman.Rose has played in 46 games this season and is averaging 18.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and five assists per game.

Whiteside Posts Triple Double in Heat Win

Whiteside Posts Triple Double in Heat Win Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- On way to a victory over the Chicago Bulls, a remarkable event occurred for the Miami Heat. Hassan Whiteside, a center who has worked on his craft in the Developmental League, recorded a triple double for the Heat in their 96-84 win. By putting up 14 points, 13 rebounds and 12 blocks, Whiteside recorded his first career triple-double. He also did this in 25 minutes of action; achieving the feat in the second shortest period of time in the shot clock era.  "It's a blessing. Like I told my teammates, you won't believe how things work out in life," said Whiteside. "Three months ago I was at the downtown Y just chilling, working on my game. I couldn't get a team to pick up the phone." A second round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2010, many teams chose to steer themselves away from Whiteside because of questions about his attitude. After working on his craft overseas and in the D-League, Whiteside signed with the Heat in November. “That’s what the team needs,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. “It gives us a very different dimension. It’s a credit to him for continuing to work hard and match it with his talent.” Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
