    That torn medial meniscus in Derrick Rose‘s right knee has been repaired.

    He’ll have plenty of time to heal, because after the procedure was finished this morning the Chicago Bulls announced that their prized point guard was done for the 2013-14 season after just 11 games in. Rose missed the entire 2012-13 season recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee in May of 2012.

    That’s back-to-back seasons in what should be the physical prime of his career wiped out. But at 25, Rose has a much better long-term prognosis for a full recovery than he did if he’d simply had meniscus shaved and replaced than if it was repaired. The only downside for Rose, the Bulls and their fans is that his season was over Friday night when he was injured in a loss to Portland.

    I feel for the brother. If he does come back from this, his game definitely has to change.

    might be impossible.. it's that breakneck style that makes him unstoppable. He's one of those unconcious rhythm players that just flows with the game.. I don't think their is too much deliberate thinking going on in there.. so it may be impossible for him to play below the rim. Ron Harper was able to do it successfully.. and so was Larry Johnson.. and Vince Carter is doing alright down there.. but those are all pretty big dudes.. D Roses career just might be over.

    No doubt some quickness will be lost after wrecking both knees. Those are not easy injuries to recover from.

    dang, so much talent hate to see that happen. I think he is an awesome shooter so what he loses in agility he wll compensate with scoring.
