    prolly career.


    Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery Monday, the team announced.

    The 2010-11 league MVP had the medial meniscus repaired in his right knee at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
    The surgery was to be performed by Dr. Brian Cole, who performed the ACL surgery on Rose's left knee in May 2012.

    Heading into the procedure, there appeared to be two options for repairing Rose's knee. He could have had the meniscus, or a portion of it, removed and been back on the floor in a matter of weeks. Having the meniscus reattached, which appears to be the route Rose and the Bulls took, sidelines him four to six months.

    While the first procedure would have put him back on the court sooner, many players who have had that procedure, including Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, say that it causes more problems later in a player's career.

    It appears that with the 25-year-old Rose the organization chose to take the longer approach with the hope that he can return to being the same player as before his first knee injury.

    Before the surgery, coach Tom Thibodeau said the team felt bad for Rose after all the work he had put in to return.

    "I talked to him at length last night. He's in good spirits," he said. "About as well as can be expected under the circumstances. And he's already thinking about his rehab, and typical Derrick -- concerned about his team, his teammates. But that being said, we can't feel sorry for ourselves. We're the Chicago Bulls. We have one goal, that's to win. And I believe we have the personnel in that locker room to get it done."

    Thibodeau said he expects Rose to make a full recovery but acknowledged there is disappointment throughout the locker room.

    "There's disappointment for Derrick because of the type of person he is," Thibodeau said. "And he's such a great teammate along with being a great player. But I think we have an understanding of what we need to do. We know we can't feel sorry for ourselves. So we have to circle the wagons and then go out there and get the job done.

    "You just take things as they come. This is all part of the NBA. Injuries are part of it. That's why it's a team. I have a lot of confidence in the guys that are on our bench. They've done a good job of preparing themselves. They have to understand what their job is, get in there and get the job done."

    ESPN.com's Nick Friedell and Kevin Arnovitz contributed to this report.

    In some ways, this is MORE tragic than the Oden situation, because D-Rose actually had his moment to shine for a while before having it ripped away from himself and the fans

    The Blazers could have drafted Michael Jordan and Kevin Durant.

    That is more tragic in my opinion.

    However I do agree that his first season he gave Bulls fans a glimpse of what might be.

    If Thibodeau hadn't left him in a game up 10 with less than a minute to play... things would be so different.

    The Blazers staff from that draft says that if they hadn't picked Bowie, they still wouldn't have taken Jordan. They would have chosen Barkley.

    I'm the one that drafted him in the fantasy league. For the longest time I couldn't dump him - ESPN does that on some players just to be funny. Marc Gasol is another one I have. He's suddenly gimped up and I can't do anything with him.

    It's not a cool vyb.

    I hope he doesn't come back until he's 100%.
