Thibodeau says Thursday he thinks "everyone has to take a step back and be patient and let him go through this process."
Analysis: Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP, said Tuesday that his decision to sit out several games already this season is partially based on ensuring he has a healthy life ahead, explaining that he doesn't want to be sore when attending post-retirement meetings, or his young son's college graduation. Those comments led some to say that Rose's focus ought to be on doing whatever is necessary to help the Bulls compete for an NBA title this season, rather than his long term future.

Analysis: Rose, who missed most of the past two seasons because of serious knee injuries, sat out the Bulls' previous two games with sprains in both ankles.

Rose said after Tuesday's practice he just wanted extra rest. Rose started the Americans' exhibition game against Brazil on Saturday.
