Late 2011, the surgery was performed on his knee that reattached the torn muscle and Rose was unable to walk for weeks. Special therapy has been assigned for him in order to slowly make his was back to court and gently practise. His determination has led to vast improvements on the recovery proccess, and mid 2012, he had started to excersie and build muscle without any problems. His teammates also comment on how hard he is working to come back and entertain the millions of fans that have been waiting on him. His type of injury requires patience and commitment, and he is fulfilling both of those tasks.
As of now, Rose is practising with the team freely and is exposed to full-contact drills, which means that the recovery is done. He is not going to play any games until he feels that his body is at 110%, as he mentioned on one of his interviews. It could be next week, or it could mean next season. but, his return is coming closer and everybody is very eager to see the star play again, and make the game much more exciting to watch.
