Derrick Rose Return Expected Before Season’s End


Derrick Rose had a successful surgery Friday morning to remove the damaged portion of his meniscus. The Chicago Bulls’ general manager Gar Forman said the Bulls guard should be cleared to return in four to six weeks. This is great news for Derrick Rose who had missed most of the previous two seasons with surgeries on both of his knees.  Tuesday evening was when the team announced Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee for the second time in 15 months. This injury was minor compared to his previous injury, which knocked him out of the 2013-2014 season. It was a quick procedure and he was able to walk out of the hospital after. Forman also said that Derrick could start working out at the team’s practice facility Saturday. “We just got to be patient and just give him the time he needs to get through the rehab,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “This rehab is much shorter. The other ones, they were expected to be long.” Derrick Rose’s teammates are relieved he could return this season. If Rose returns in 4 weeks, his first game would be a home game on March 28th against the New York Knicks. If he returns in 6 weeks, he would only have three games left. The Bulls have eight games in April before the playoffs begin. The team is currently fourth place in the Eastern Conference. This news is good for the team because having Rose healthy for the playoffs could be critical.
