Rose said during a recent European promotional tour he feels 100 percent healthy and plans to play in the preseason opener. He's been sidelined since April 28, 2012 when he tore the ACL in his left knee in a playoff game against Philadelphia.

The Bulls will start the preseason against Central Division rival Indiana on Sat., Oct. 5, then face Memphis at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. After that, they'll play the first NBA game in Brazil on Sat. Oct. 12 against Washington.

After Detroit, the Bulls will host Indiana on Oct. 18, Milwaukee on Oct. 21, followed by Nate Robinson and the Denver Nuggets on Oct. 25.

The other preseason road game is Oct. 23 against Oklahoma City in Wichita, Kan., the hometown of Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin.
