Bulls’ Derrick Rose knee surgery successful, out for rest of season
After missing the entire 2012-13 season due to an ACL tear in his left knee, Chicago Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose will not play for the rest of this season. Rose suffered a tear in his meniscus during Friday’s loss against the Portland Trail Blazers.
He underwent successful surgery to repair the damage in his right knee on Monday.
Heading into the procedure, there appeared to be two options for repairing Rose’s knee. He could have had the meniscus, or a portion of it, removed and been back on the floor in a matter of weeks. Having the meniscus reattached, which appears to be the route Rose and the Bulls took, sidelines him four to six months.
The first procedure would have definitely put Rose back on the court a lot sooner, but players like the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade who underwent the procedure, say that it cause more problems in the future.
It seems like D. Rose can’t catch a break.
Some say the star is done for. Are they right? Is Derrick Rose’s career over?
