Derrick Rose has just had an MRI and announced that the point guard will be out indefinitely after receiving surgery for a torn medial meniscus.

Bulls guard Derrick Rose sustained an injury to his right knee against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night.

Subsequent examinations and an MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear to his right knee, which will require surgery. Rose is out indefinitely, and will not accompany the team on the rest of its current road trip.


Rose picked up the injury Friday evening against the Portland Trail Blazers, as he planted his leg awkwardly on a turn. Early reports said that doctors were fearing an ACL tear.

Reports say that Rose knew he had damaged his knee, but also said that it didn’t feel like the ACL injury he suffered on his left knee. He was right, but unfortunately the damage is severe enough to require surgery. He is currently listed as “out indefinitely” and it’s uncertain whether or not he will miss the rest of the season.
