Derrick Rose : Another knee surgery for the torn meniscus in his right knee.

Derrick Martell Rose Chicago Bulls guard has a torn meniscus in his right knee and is planning to undergo surgery.This is his sixth season with the Bulls. In his first three seasons, he missed a combined six games and won the league MVP in 2011. He has two seasons left on his Bulls contract after this season, through 2016-17 and is owed about $41 million for those two seasons.

Now it is It's unclear when Rose re injured the knee. He appeared to be rounding into form last month, averaging 22.6 points over his final 14 games before the All-Star break, but he had struggled since returning to the court after the time off.

Chicago Bulls announced Tuesday night that Rose was feeling pain in his knee, and an exam and magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a medial meniscus tear. From he official announcement a possible timeline for his return won't be determined until he has surgery.

In a statement Rose missed eight of the team s first 13 games. But then he only missed three games and sat out the second half of another game back in November, overall an impressive return after having missed basically two full years. This came after a strong summer with USA Basketball winning a gold medal in the FIBA World Cup. Rose showed he was still fast and explosive and capable of having big games against the best teams and players.

From the Calender of the Chicago Bulls in the year of 2011 N.B.A. most valuable player, Rose played in only 10 games last season before he had surgery for the same injury in November 2013, shelving him for the year, but the Bulls said a timetable for his return would be determined after the operation.

In the last week, Rose made headlines by missing the Bulls first practice after the All-Star break, then followed that up with two shaky performances including a 1-for-13 shooting effort Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks in the three games he played in since.

Rose and his family and advisers opted to have team physician Brian Cole repair and reattach rather than remove the torn meniscus during the November 2013 surgery. This created a longer rehabilitation period, which is why Rose's 2013-14 season ended after those 10 games. But it also was considered better for long-term success and lack of arthritis after his playing career.

To the report from the team and the Coach that, he had a great rhythm going before the break; he'll get right back to it. You're always faced with the challenge of getting used to a long season again. You want everyone to play with high energy every game and I think he's still getting used to that. When you're out that long, it takes some time. I'm sure he's going to be back in a good rhythm, like he was right before the break. I think that's coming.
