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.
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.

CHICAGO -- Given the history, it was tough to decide what was bigger news Monday at the United Center: The late surge that gave the Chicago Bulls a 96-81 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers or the right hamstring injury that kept Bulls guard Derrick Rose on the bench for the final 3:15.
In the locker room, Rose insisted the injury was nothing major, but after he missed all of last season while recovering from knee surgery, no mishap is minor news.
"It's just a minor sprain, nothing serious," Rose said. "Hopefully I'll be fine in a couple days. It's nothing big at all."
