Horri-Bull News, D Rose to Undergo Potential Season Ending Knee Surgery
Derrick Rose is heading back to the IR for the third time in as many seasons. The team announcing Tuesday night that the 2011 league MVP will go under the knife to repair a torn meniscus. Rose complained of right knee pain earlier in the day, and an MRI later confirmed his worst fears.
Rose missed the entire 2013 season and made it just ten games into the 2014 season before another right knee injured derailed his comeback campaign.
He was averaging 18.4 ppg and 5 apg for the 36-21 Bulls. Look for journeyman Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich to play an increased role in his absence.
Chicago plans to reevaluate Rose's status post-surgery.
