Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- One day after having surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee, Bulls point guard Derrick Rose was back at Chicago's training facility beginning his rehab process.

"He's good," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "He came in, started his rehab, it's good."

Bulls general manager Gar Forman says he expects Rose to be back on the floor in 4-6 weeks.

"It's just the initial steps," Thibodeau said. "But we're cautiously optimistic, he's in good spirits. He's on it, so it's good."

Thibodeau also added that Rose's rehab process has already been scheduled with the help of the Chicago Bulls training staff, and team doctors.

Kevin Harvick Wins XFINITY Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images(HAMPTON, Ga.) -- Kevin Harvick took the lead with 26 laps to go on Saturday and took home the checkered flag in the XFINITY Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Harvick held off Joey Logano to win at Atlanta for the third straight time.

"The first thing I want to do is thank all those fans today," Harvick said. "To see that crowd out there, I'm really happy for Atlanta Motor Speedway."

"That pit stop is what won this race," Harvick continued.  "Joey probably had a little bit better car the second half of the run, but it really played out there for us as we were able to have that short run and take off."

Logano won the pole for Sunday's Sprint Cup race and was happy to have a great run.

"This is the closest anyone's been to beating Kevin here in a long time," Logano said. "We got beat off pit road. We had a decent restart, but the outside lane is so tough. At that point, I was trying to move around to different lanes. Trying to find something for some speed."

Former Knick Anthony Mason Passes Away

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Former New York Knick Anthony Mason has passed away Saturday, according to ESPN.

A third round pick in 1988 out of Tennessee State, Mason was selected by the Portland Trailblazers. He would play 13 seasons in the NBA.

Dan Mullen Extended Through 2018 Season

Football Texture/iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- Mississippi State extended the contract of head football coach Dan Mullen through the 2018 season.

Mullen, who last season led the Bulldogs to their first 10-win season in school history and was named the 2014 Maxwell National Coach of the Year, will make an average of $4.275 million per year.


"It's a privilege to represent our university, our program and our fans here at Mississippi State," Mullen said. "I appreciate (athletic director) Scott Stricklin and our administration who have given us the tools and resources to be successful and develop Bulldog football into a national brand over the last six years.

"We spent five weeks ranked No. 1 last season for the first time, but we have only scratched this surface on what we can accomplish here. We have created a winning culture both on and off the field and built a program that has sustained success in the nation's toughest conference. I've always said we are going to win a championship here, and I firmly believe that."

Before Mullen arrived in Starkville in 2009, Mississippi State had losing records in seven of its previous eight seasons. Since then the program has had five winning seasons.

Mullen has a 46-31 record at Mississippi State and has won more bowl games (3) than any other coach in Bulldogs history.

Rose has Knee Surgery, Should Miss 4-6 Weeks

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose had successful knee surgery and should be able to return to the team in four to six weeks, Bulls general manager Gar Forman said Friday.

The 24-year-old Rose has had surgeries on both of his knees in the past couple years. Those surgeries caused Rose to miss most of the past two seasons, but this one shouldn't keep the former MVP off the court as long.

"There's the old saying that surgery's minor as long as it's on somebody else," Forman said. "But in this case, in comparison to what Derrick's had to go through the last several years, this surgery really was minor."

Rose tore his medial meniscus in his right knee for the second time in 15 months. The previous time Rose had surgery he missed most of the 2013-14 season. This time should prove to be less serious as Rose was able to walk out of the hospital after the surgery.

Rose could also begin working out at the team's practice facility as soon as Saturday, according to Forman.

Rose has played in 46 games this season and is averaging 18.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and five assists per game.
