Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday that guard Derrick Rose is unlikely to return to action during the playoffs. Rose tore the ACL in his left knee on April 28th of last year in the first game of last season's playoffs. He has not played at all this season, but was medically cleared to play earlier this year. Rose sat on the bench during Chicago's Game One loss on Saturday next to Thibodeau.
