Derrick Rose Out Indefinitely For 2013-14 NBA Season, Needs Surgery
If you are a Chicago Bulls fan this is the worst news you’ll hear all day…year: Derrick Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee, will require surgery and is out indefinitely for the rest of the season.
Rose went down in the third quarter of last night’s close game against the Portland Trail Blazers. (Portland beat Chicago, 98 – 95.)
This season was suppose to be Rose’s comeback year, after the 25-year-old sat out last season entirely following a torn ACL in his left knee that happened during the 2012 playoffs. Only 10 games into the 2013-2014 NBA season, Rose was averaging 15.9 points, 4.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds, not exactly stellar, but expected since he was out for so long.
Ironically, Rose was hoping to thank his fans with some wins this season, and went on record in a Adidas commercial to hype his return.
“It’s time to remind the world that even though I wasn’t on the court, I never left the game,” Rose said.
Fans are gonna be pissed.
