Derek Rose Undergoes Successful Surgery; Officially Out For Season [Video]
Chicago Bulls star point guard Derek Rose, what the team called “successful surgery” to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Unfortunately the surgery means that Rose will miss the rest of the season for the second straight year. Last year he did not play one game as he recovered from a torn ACL in his other knee in the 2012 playoffs.
Rose said to USA Today,
“I don’t know what type of player I’m going to be (when I return). I just know that I’m going to be very good.”
The Bulls signed Derrick Rose to a five-year, $94.8 million contract extension in December of 2011. The year he became MVP for the season. He also signed a 13-year contract worth $185 million with ADIDAS in February 2012.
Another Bulls star, Luol Deng may not be with the team next season as he has an expiring contract after the season. Another big part of their team, Carlos Boozer may not be with the team either next season, putting in question the future for the Chicago Bulls hopes.
Kirk Hinrich will be starting at point guard replacing Rose while he recovers from his injury. No word or rumors on any moves being made on the trade market just yet.
