Soon after, this constant MVP threat started experiencing major knee problems. His first knee surgery was in 2012, after the Bulls were in the Eastern Conference Championship, he tore his ACL in April. An ACL injury is probably the hardest injury to recover from. After recovering from this knee injury, he tore his meniscus in 2013 which meant he only played 10 games during the season. After recovering from the torn meniscus he had get to his knee cleaned arthroscopically to clean up loose cartilage.
Now at 26 years old, Derrick has fully recovered from all his injuries, and now he is expected to fulfill his first round potential, and in fact he did that for about 30 games, the rest of the games he sit out due to knee soreness.
But on Tuesday, Rose will undergo surgery for his meniscus tear which happened near the end of the fourth quarter during a game against Portland Trail Blazers. The second of his career along with an ACL tear and arthroscopic cleaning.
So the ultimate decision would be for Rose, is he going to be able to stay healthy enough to sustain a full season? He would think so, Derrick probably will retire once his legs don’t work anymore, but for now the sports world wishes him good luck.
