CHICAGO (AFP) - Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls playmaker who has not played since tearing left knee ligaments in last year's playoff opener, says he will not return to the National Basketball Association until he is "110 per cent".

In comments to USA Today, Rose said that despite the fact he is travelling with the Bulls and practices with them, there is no timetable for the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player's return to the lineup.

"I don't have a set date," Rose said.

"I'm not coming back until I'm 110 per cent. Who knows when that can be? It can be within a couple of weeks. It could be next year. It could be any day. It could be any time.
