LeBron may be more aggressive against Bulls in Game 2

LeBron James says he may have to change his mindset and be more aggressive in Game 2 against the Chicago Bulls. With the Cleveland Cavaliers missing starters Kevin Love and J.R. Smith, the Cavs dropped Game 1 on Monday. James scored 19 points and added 15 rebounds and nine assists, but he often deferred to others instead of driving to the basket and that may have to change if the Cavs intend to even the series at home tonight ( 4, TNT). Also, Bulls star guard Derrick Rose says he has no pain in his right shoulder and doesn’t expect any problems going into Game 2 tonight. Rose sustained a “stinger” in his shoulder late in the series opener. – AP

Bulls say Rose back this season

CHICAGO – The Chicago Bulls can breathe a little easier. They expect Derrick Rose to return this season from his latest knee surgery. General manager Gar Forman said the star point guard will miss 4-6 weeks after the operation Friday to fix a medial meniscus tear in his right knee.

Bulls say Derrick Rose will have surgery on Friday

The Chicago Bulls say Derrick Rose will have surgery today to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee and a timetable for his return will be determined after the operation. The 2011 NBA MVP played in only 10 games last season before having surgery for a similar injury in November 2013, cutting short his long-awaited comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Rose had the cartilage reattached. This time, the Bulls say team physician Dr. Brian Cole will perform a meniscectomy, which involves removing the damaged cartilage. Dr. Alexis Colvin, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, said the recovery is generally about six weeks but could take longer for someone with a previous tear. – AP

He also seemed happy to defer to his teammates in his first appearance at the United Center since his latest season-ending knee injury, finishing with seven points.

NBA MVP Rose denies steroids quote

Chicago guard and reigning NBA MVP Derrick Rose (pictured) says he does not recall telling ESPN the Magazine that the league has a steroid problem. The magazine’s May 16 issue has a quote it attributes to Rose, in which he was quoted as saying the NBA has a “huge” problem and needs “a level playing field.” Before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Sunday night against Miami, Rose issued a statement through the Bulls saying he does not even recall being asked about the topic. He adds that if he was asked about performance-enhancing drug use, he “clearly misunderstood” the question. Rose says, “Let me be clear, I do not believe there is a performance-enhancing drug problem in the NBA.” Associated Press

Rose named NBA’s best

Chiacgo Bulls star Derrick Rose is the NBA’s MVP, becoming the youngest player in league history to win the award, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press. The person spoke Monday night on the condition of anonymity because a formal announcement has not been made. That could come to day, with a formal presentation before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Wednesday. “If I get it? It’ll be nice, unbelievable, a goal that in the beginning in the year I said I wanted to achieve,” Rose said recently when asked what the award would mean to him. “It would be huge, not only for me, but for the city.” Associated Press

Bulls’ Rose day-to-day with ankle sprain

Derrick Rose (pictured) played 32 minutes, 29 seconds after spraining his left ankle Saturday, which is why teammates looked incredulous when asked if the Bulls’ No. 1 – in every conceivable manner – will play in Game 5 on Tuesday after two days of rest. “One hundred percent he’ll play,” said C.J. Watson, Rose’s replacement if he can’t go. Rose underwent an MRI exam Sunday afternoon, hours after he wore a walking boot as he sat for an individual film session with coach Tom Thibodeau. The Bulls watched film, walked through sets and got in individual work, and Rose is listed as day-to-day after not participating in the latter. Chicago Tribune
