Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will have 'no restrictions' this season after recovering from injury.

Chicago Bulls vice-president John Paxson is delighted with Derrick Rose's progress in pre-season and believes that he has 'no restrictions' ahead of the new campaign.

The 25-year-old has returned to action after an 18-month layoff due to a torn ACL, and has wasted little time in getting back into his rhythm.

"We've turned the page," Paxson said, according to ESPN Chicago.

"He's played six games. In reality he is only averaging about 27 minutes a game in this pre-season, and he has looked terrific. Right now there is no reason to think that there will be any restrictions, and we're not anticipating that at all."

Rose has averaged 19.7 points in pre-season appearances, but that figure has steadily increased in the past three games to 27.3 as the Bulls remain undefeated.
