Derrick Rose ‘Feeling Good’ After First Game

Bulls_Derrick_Rose_2013ST. LOUIS — After all the hubbub surrounding his first game back in more than 17 months, Derrick Rose was able to experience a sense of normalcy Sunday.

The media mob had disappeared, the concerns over his surgically repaired left knee were laid to rest, and Rose went to practice for Monday’s exhibition game against the Grizzlies like it was just another day at work.

The big question Sunday was how Rose’s knee felt the day after his first test.

“Feeling good,” Rose said Sunday before practice at Saint Louis University. “Thibs was asking me the same thing. I’m feeling all right. I could’ve played some more, but they took me out. If anything, (they were) just watching me, making sure I’m all right.”
