Bulls' Derrick Rose to undergo knee surgery on Monday


From diagnosed to the operating table in about 48 hours, Chicago Bulls star point guard Derrick Rose will undergo surgery on his right knee on Monday, this according to K.C. Johnson.

DRose surgery set for Monday.

The operation will be performed by team doctor Brian Cole, who also performed Rose’s left ACL surgery.

Currently, there’s no word as to what type of surgery Cole will be performing on Rose as the former Memphis Tiger could opt to have his meniscus reattached. He could also attempt to go for the less invasive ‘clean up’ which would likely get Rose back on the court at some point this season, though reportedly could put his future in jeopardy.

Johnson reported earlier Sunday that Rose was leaning towards having his meniscus reattached, which would likely end his season though would allow him to fully recover and not cause any damage to him down the road – something that isn’t guaranteed with a ‘clean up’ procedure.

Our best wishes to Rose in his recovery, whatever option he decides upon.
