The Chicago Bulls suffered another Derrick Rose injury, but the team is expecting him back in 4-6.
Derrick Rose can’t seem to stay healthy, which is perhaps the biggest shame that everyone is crying about these days for every solid reasons. But the future isn’t as in doubt as we may have thought when it comes to Derrick Rose as his career isn’t over and his season isn’t over.
Rose underwent surgery to fix a medical meniscus tear but he won’ the out as long as people feared. It was initially assumed that Rose will miss the remainder of the season — including the postseason — but that’s not the case. According to Bulls GM Gar Forman, the team is expecting Rose to only miss 4-6 weeks, which means he’ll be back before the season ends.
This means that Rose is expected back no later than April 3rd, which is still a few games before the end of the regular season.
It’s highly doubtful that Rose actually plays again in the regular season as the Bulls are looking to lock up a playoff spot even without him in the lineup. It would take a massive collapse down the stretch of the season in order for the Bulls to miss the postseason which means Rose is likely going to shelve his talents until the playoffs start.
This is the best move for all involved as Rose needs to get healthy and can’t continue to rush himself back. It’s been three years since Rose tore his ACL in April 2012 and we’ve been constantly in fear of him re-injuring himself again — something he has done every single year since.
Rose still has time to correct his career but it’s come to the point where he needs to manage his injuries in order to make sure he is available for the Bulls when they need him.
