Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery Monday, the team announced.
The 2010-11 league MVP had the medial meniscus repaired in his right knee at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
The surgery was to be performed by Dr. Brian Cole, who performed the ACL surgery on Rose’s left knee in May 2012.
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.
While the first procedure would have put him back on the court sooner, many players who have had that procedure, including Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, say that it causes more problems later in a player’s career.
It appears that with the 25-year-old Rose the organization chose to take the longer approach with the hope that he can return to being the same player as before his first knee injury.
damn that sucks.
this was suppose to be his big comeback too.
well i hope he gets better,
lowkey: people are saying he is done.
