The results are in for Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose, who’s regarded as the best point guard in the NBA. Unfortunately the former league MVP, he will be out indefintelty after another serious knee injury. This time, it’s a torn meniscus, but it is on the opposite knee of his previous injury:


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.
