After Derrick Rose tore his medial meniscus in his right knee again, many feared that his 2014-15 season was in jeopardy. However, D-Rose underwent successful surgery today and a timetable for his return has been pegged at 4-6 weeks. If he takes his time returning and sits out for six weeks, he'll still be able to play in three regular season games before the playoffs get underway.
The Chicago Bulls will once again be without Derrick Rose in what has become an all too common theme for the former league MVP. An MRI confirmed that Rose has a meniscus tear in his right knee and he'll be undergoing surgery; a timetable for his return will be determined after the procedure.
Given his stint of injuries over the course of the last four years, you have to wonder if he'll ever be the explosive player he once was.
Rumors are swirling that this new pair of Air Jordan 11s, which looks like a cross between the 'Bred' and 'Space Jam' colorways, will be Jordan Brand's holiday release at the end of this year.
The kicks are said to be a tribute to the Chicago Bulls' epic 1995-96 season in which they won an NBA record 72 games en route to a 72-10 regular season record and an NBA championship. The sneakers are to be built on a thick premium leather, rather than the traditional mesh and will feature a translucent outsole.
One of the main storylines going into this season is the return of Derrick Rose, as fans had waited nearly a year and a half from the time he injured his ACL and he played real meaningful NBA minutes.
We saw him look explosive and return to form during the preseason, but he hadn't really made a full comeback until he played a regular season game. One Chicago native that was hyped for D Rose's return was the President of the United States of America.
Taking to his Twitter account, Barack Obama officially welcomed the Bulls' point guard back.
