This is not one of the best NBA dunks by a long shot.

It is, however, a pretty significant one for Bulls fans.

Derrick Rose Dunk in Warmups

Chicago star Derrick Rose surprised fans with an impromptu, non-verbal status report on his recovery from a torn ACL in his left knee the other night.

While teammates warmed up to face the Oklahoma City Thunder, the 2011 NBA MVP, who’s been out since last spring, threw down a two-handed dunk.

Not only did he land without visible discomfort, his elevation looked effortless. Not exactly Michael Jordan highlights, but music to the ears of the Windy City.

Rose is still without a clear return date, but expect it soon.
