What Chicago Bulls fans and NBA fans in general feared most, and perhaps expected, has now been officially confirmed. Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season after undergoing successful knee surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus.
Earlier this morning, Derrick Rose underwent successful surgery to repair his previously torn medial meniscus in his right knee…
… The surgery was performed at Rush University Medical Center and Rose is out for the remainder of the season.
This is obviously devastating news, as it is pretty clear, once again, that the Bulls are no longer serious contenders for a championship.
Luol Deng is on an expiring contract, and it is highly possible that the Bulls might look to cash in on his value and move him before the trade deadline. We can expect to see his name in a lot of rumors this season. Then again, Chicago could opt to keep their playmaker and try to make the best out of their situation.
Rose played in just ten games this season, and suffered the injury against the Portland Trail Blazers last week.
We wish Rose a speedy recovery.
