Derrick Rose thinks he'll play Sunday

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Barring any setbacks, Derrick Rose believes he will make his long awaited return to the Chicago Bulls starting lineup Sunday afternoon against the New York Knicks.

Rose, who has already missed 22 games this season because of various injuries, including 12 consecutive with a groin injury, says the pain in his groin is gone.

"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."
