On Tuesday night Chicago Bulls’ superstar guard, Derrick Rose suffered yet another serious knee injury. Rose suffered a tear to his medial meniscus in his right knee, the same knee that limited him to only 10 games last season. Rose will undergo season ending knee surgery. Rose has been having a down hill season this year, one of his worst. Rose is below a league average shooter this year, going 1-13 from the field on Monday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, and his only filed goal coming from a three pointer. Rose was not one of eight point guards selected for the All-Star game this year.

Rose averaged 17.9 points per game in the last ten games, and only 18.4 points on the season compared to averaging 20.5 points in his career. He has only played in 95 games in the past three seasons causing a lot of instability at the point guard position for the Bulls. Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau reacted to the news and told  Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com “I don’t know what to say other than its so unfair.” The pressure is going to be put on Jimmy Butler, who had red hot start, but is starting to cool off as of late.
