New York Knicks have lost another player for the season. Derrick Rose has a torn meniscus and will not play again this season.
He tore his meniscus in his left knee. His injury is expected to require surgery.
Rose is expected to be healthy by the time he becomes a free agent in July. The Knicks have just six games left entering Sunday.
He was in his first-year with the Knicks after spending his career with the Chicago Bulls. In the Big Apple, he averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists in 64 games.
This is the latest setback for the Chicago native. And this will be his fourth knee operation in the past several years.
He first suffered a torn ACL during the 2012 playoffs. Then, after he came back from that injury, he tore his right meniscus and only played in 10 games in the 2013-14 season.
Rose also had a minor surgery on his right meniscus in 2015.
He said that he would like to remain in New York. However, there are a few things that’ll go against him in returning.
He went AWOL previously and did not contact the team for a day. He said he left to be with his grandmother; however, he later changed it to missing his son. Rose was fined by the team.
Rose also struggled in the triangle offense. As long as Phil Jackson is overseeing the Knicks, they are going to try to run the triangle.
