Chicago Bulls/NBA(DEERFIELD, Ill.) — Chicago Bulls all-star Derrick Rose will be looking to make a return to the lineup on Sunday against the New York Knicks.

Rose who has missed a total of 22 games this season and 12 consecutive games with a strained groin said everything is looking good for tomorrow.

“I’m feeling good,” Rose said after Saturday morning’s practice. “My groin’s not bothering me. I’m happy to move on. My spirits are up. Today is my first full practice. Just practicing with the guys felt good out there and hopefully I’ll be playing Sunday.”

The Bulls have gone 15-7 with Rose sidelined.

“It’s really not up to him, it’s up to me,” Rose said when asked about who will make the call, him or head coach Tom Thibodeau.  “Where if I’m feeling good, I’m going to play. If I think that I need some more days, I’m going to take some more days. But more than likely I’ll be out there.”
