Rose sustained an injury to his right knee against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night. An MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear to his right knee, which will require surgery. Surgically repaired meniscus tears can keep players out anywhere from eight weeks to four months. He missed all of the 2012-13 season after tearing his left ACL in the 2012 NBA playoffs and was away from NBA games for 18 months.
