With his teammates struggling in Game 2 against the Miami Heat, rumors of Derrick Rose's possible return to the court were still running wild across the Internet.

Game 3 in the semifinal NBA series is Friday at the United Center, and Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, a property of USA Today, reported before the game that Rose may dress on Friday, citing "word out of Chicago." The report suggested he might not play except in an emergency, and also declared that "no confirmation" had come from the team.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, however, when asked about the rumor during the shoot around, smirked and replied, "Nothing's changed."

A follow up report by Yahoo Sports called it "possible but unlikely".
