Let Rose rest up towards the end of the season. That way if they bring him in for the playoffs, the Bulls have that new EXTRA gear that only the Heat have.
And we will have the element of surprise. Is he healthy? How will he mesh with the Bulls? Has he added an other skills?
It gives the Bulls and extra dimension they don't have right now, and it can take teams by surprise depending on how healthy Derrick is and how well he would be able to perform.
How good do you think he will be by playoff time if you don't bring him back when you can and gradually bring his minutes up? You can't bring him back just before the playoffs and expect him to be able to play 40 minutes straight up, need to ease him back, maybe from the allstar break.
