It’s early. The NBA regular season only began this past Tuesday. And Derrick Rose is still working his way back into form. Here’s the Chicago Tribune:

Derrick Rose

Tom Thibodeau uttered the phrase twice, as if to reassure himself. Or, at least, a worried fan base.

“Some of it is bobbles,” the Chicago Bulls’ coach said. “There’s some rust. He’ll be fine. He’ll be fine.”

Thibodeau was discussing Derrick Rose’s turnovers, which on Saturday featured eight against the Philadelphia 76ers. That included five in the final quarter, all in the final 7 minutes, 59 seconds.

Rose ranks second behind the Warriors’ Stephen Curry with 5.7 turnovers per game. Curry is at 6.3.
