Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season

According to The Verticle's Adrian Wojnarowski Rose will miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus in his knee.

Since suffering his second knee injury in 2013 Rose has not been able to get back to the skill level he once was at when he won MVP.

Rose has suffered the same injury twice in his National Basketball Association career.

The point guard has a long history of sabotaging knee injuries, but the timing of his latest could not be worse for his financial future.

A three-time All-Star, Rose has career averages of 19.5 points and 6.0 assists while playing 470 of a possible 722 games.




Rose missed his third straight game Sunday against Boston. He missed the entire 2012-13 season, played only 10 games the following season, and missed substantial time in every season since.

Rose has averaged 18 points and 3.8 rebounds per game but was fined by the team in January after skipping a game against New Orleans without informing management of his whereabouts. The Knicks sent the Bulls center Robin Lopez and guard Jerian Grant in the deal.

The 28-year-old will require surgery that should take six to eight weeks to heal, per Wojnarowski, which means many teams might not approach him until at least mid-May.

An unrestricted free agent-to-be, Rose's injury could have a severe impact on his market value over the offseason.
