UPDATE: here's a fairly-complete video of Rose's presser from the Trib.

Prior to tonight's contest against the Memphis Grizzlies, Derrick Rose told reporters that he plans on making a return to the court this season after suffering a torn right meniscus which is believed to sideline the former MVP for four-to-six weeks, placing his the tenative return date somewhere towards the end of the regular season in April. Rose wasn't overly commital nor was he definitive when speaking on an exact return date, which should come as no surprise. But he emphaized remaining positive and that listening to his body will likely take precedent over all else.

Perhaps the most interesting thing Rose said today, though, was that he'd possibly been playing with the injury for about a month and cited the Golden State game in January as when it might've occurred:

At any rate, obviously the hope is that Rose does not suffer any setbacks and is able to return to the hardwood this season.
