Although this is an injury that players can often come back from within a couple months, due to him recovering from his ACL injury as well, the Bulls have announced that D Rose is done for the rest of the season.
Derrick Rose left last night's game against the Blazers after injuring his knee on a non-contact play, and the basketball world was waiting with bated breath to get the MRI results.

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.
