The Wall Street Journal studied 20 NBA players age 26 or younger who tore their ACL since 2003 and found those players shooting percentages increased four percent in the second season after returning from injury.
Coach Tom Thibodeau said he also expects Derrick Rose to be a more dangerous shooter when he returns.
"That's Derrick," Thibodeau said. "Each year he has gotten significantly better. He keeps driving himself. That's his nature. You'll see that throughout his career. I do expect his shooting to improve. I expect all aspects of his game will improve. That's what he has done so far."
