Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season

It was a surprising but all too familiar ending to Rose's first season in NY. He has played in 64 out of the team's 76 games-84 percent-and has put up decent numbers: 18.0 points, 4.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.3 turnovers per game.

Derrick Rose will be a free agent in July, and sources say the recovery time on torn meniscus in his left knee expected to be 6-to-8 weeks. "He's played hard all year", coach Jeff Hornacek said.

Traded to NY last June with Justin Holiday for Robin Lopez and Jerian Grant when the Bulls made a decision to cut ties with the Chicago native, Rose's current season got off to a shaky start while he successfully defended himself in civil court against sexual assault allegations brought by a former girlfriend. "Again, the way the season has gone, to have something like that happen towards the end is a bad break for us".

Rose missed the Knicks' last two games in what was originally described as knee soreness.




Rose tore his left ACL in the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire next season.

Now, the question is, which Rose will prospective free agency bidders see in the offseason - a former NBA MVP who can still consistently score and lead a team, or an oft-injured guard who turns 29 before next season starts?

When he's healthy, Rose is a dynamic scorer. However, out of a possible 738 career games, Rose has missed 268, so teams will probably be unwilling to open their checkbooks for the unreliable star.
