The talismanic Chicago Bulls point guard hopes he can make it back for the playoffs.

DERRICK ROSE ISN’T quite ruling out a return to the Chicago Bulls this season.

The superstar point guard left the door slightly open for a comeback in the playoffs if his surgically repaired right knee is healed — even though the team has said he will miss the rest of the year.

Rose suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee in a game at Portland on Nov. 22. He had surgery in Chicago three days later, cutting short his long awaited return after he sat out last season recuperating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

He said today that he would come back for the playoffs “If I’m healthy and my meniscus is fully healed.”
