Bulls’ Star Derrick Rose Injures Knee, Out for the Rest of The Season
When the Bulls won the first game of the playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, they also lost their star player, Derrick Rose, to a season ending knee injury.
It was near the end of the fourth quarter when Rose jumped for a routine jump stop. As he came back to the ground, Rose crumbled. He later reported hearing his knee pop. The starter attempted to get up but fell back to floor when his knee would not support his weight.
Rose was able to walk off the court with support from team personnel. He later received an MRI from Rush Medical Center, showing a torn anterior cruciate ligament on the left knee. Once the swelling goes down on the point guard’s knee, he plans to undergo surgery to repair the ligament. Recovery time from this type of injury varies and some athletes have been off from their sport for nine month or more.
