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.
