DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose participated in five-on-five drills, the latest step in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Coach Tom Thibodeau told reporters after practice that Rose "did what everyone else did."

Rose has been sidelined since he tore his ACL late in last season's playoff-opening win over Philadelphia. The top-seeded Bulls wound up losing that first-round series.
