Analysis: USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo says the injured Chicago Bulls guard will be invited to training camp in July and ''is welcome to show us where he is.'' Colangelo said Wednesday that if Rose is ready, ''he has a chance to make the team.'' Rose had surgery in November to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, and the Bulls said he would miss the rest of the season. But Colangelo says Chicago is encouraging Rose and USA Basketball to consider him playing this summer.

He sat out last year while recovering from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

The coach also repeated several times on Wednesday that Rose will miss the rest of the 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.

Analysis: Rose has played two preseason games without any sign of problems. The first NBA game in South America now will be missing its biggest star.

Analysis: Rose is expected to be ready after sitting out last season while recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
