Derrick Rose is improving, but Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Tuesday that the former MVP isn’t expected to practice with the team this season as he rehabs from surgery on a torn medial meniscus in his right knee.

“He’s running on a treadmill,” Thibodeau said. “Making a shot here or there, he’s doing well. He’s doing fine. He’s still nowhere close to practicing or anything like that, but he’s doing well overall.”

In other Bulls’ injury-related news, power forward Carlos Boozer is a game-time decision for Tuesday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks as he continues to deal with a left calf strain that has kept him out of the last two contests.
