Rose Out for the Remainder of the Season with Torn Meniscus

New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose is out for the remainder of the season after suffering another knee injury.

The team announced on Sunday that Rose has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will be miss the remaining five games of the season. According to the Vertical, Rose will likely need six to eight to recover from this latest knee procedure.

Unfortunately for Rose, knee injuries have plagued his entire career. According to ESPN, Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season. He then tore the meniscus in his right knee in his first season back from surgery, costing him the final 72 games.

The 28 year-old, is a three time all-star and the 2010-2011 league MVP. Fans have caught a glimpse of Rose’s potential; however, injuries have prevented the guard being that explosive player that he once was.

Rose will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. It is will be interesting to see if any teams are willing to pick him up giving his history of knee injuries and decrease in productivity.
