Derrick Rose has another knee injury.
The Chicago Bulls point guard has a torn meniscus in his right knee, the team announced late Tuesday. Rose, whose previous two seasons were ended by knee injuries, needs surgery and has no timeline on his return.
Rose reported pain in his knee to team doctors and had an MRI to confirm that his right medial meniscus was torn, again. It’s the same injury that cut his 2013-14 season short after 10 games.
He previously tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire 2012-13 season as a result.
The 2010-11 NBA MVP had not returned to his superstar caliber but had played 46 games for the Bulls (36-21), averaging 18.4 points and 5.0 assists a game. The Bulls likely will lean on Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich to play point guard.
