Derrick Rose Is Out For The Season, Another Knee InjuryBy: Tobias Roth - November 25, 2013
Well, Derrick Rose just can’t seem to stay in the game. He missed all of last season due to a knee injury, then came back this season, and injured his other knee. The recent injury occurred in Portland against the Portland Trailblazers on Saturday night.
There were recent reports that Derrick Rose had been injured, but it was hard to determine how serious the injury was until now. While his coach and teammates were all hoping for the best, but with his history, it was hard to think too positively on the situation.
Derrick Rose is one of the star players, and the point guard for the Chicago Bulls. It is easy to tell how much of a difference he makes on the team, after missing most of last season, and causing the Bulls to make the playoffs, but struggled greatly without him.
It was announced today that Derrick Rose would be out for the rest of the season, a fear that has teammates, coach, and many fans around the country had after witnessing him going down on Saturday.
He will miss the remaining games in the 2013-2014 season, after completing a successful surgery on Monday morning to repair the torn medial meniscus in his right knee. The team is certainly different without him, and he will be missed by each of his teammates.
Luol Deng spoke about his injury, and is excited for the day when he is able to return when saying “It’s not going to change anything. He’s still going to be Derrick. He still is going to work hard and come back even better. I really believe that he was better coming back from that ACL. It’s unfortunate that it happened. I have no doubt he’s going to come back and play great.”
The NBA suffered a great loss when he got injured and was forced to have reconstructive surgery on his left knee last season. In Saturday’s game, he was injured during the third quarter, and this time it is his right knee that has been hurt.
With Derrick Rose out for another season, the Chicago Bulls will have to count on their other star players such as Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, and Carlos Boozer to get the job done. Chicago is currently 6-6, putting them in second place in the Central division behind the Indiana Pacers.
Hopefully after another season of recovery, Derrick Rose will finally be able to make it back to the NBA, and have an impact on the Bulls’ 2014-2015 season.
