Description: Syracuse coach and Team USA assistant coach Jim Boeheim said Bulls point guard Derrick Rose has been "the most impressive guy" at Team USA\'s training camp, according to ESPNChicago.com.
Insight: Rose missed most of last season with a torn meniscus after sitting out all of the previous season while recovering from a torn ACL. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, another Team USA assistant, also praised Rose. "The same (speed and explosiveness). The strength in his leg is great. His explosion is back. That\'s all there," Thibodeau said.
Description: Spurs guard Manu Ginobili (stress fracture in his right leg) has apparently not been granted permission by the Spurs to play in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball.
Insight: Ginobili wanted to play for his country in the World Cup, but only if healthy. After a long and successful playoff run, it\'s not surprising that the team wanted the 37-year-old to rest as much as possible in the offseason.
