Derrick Rose Hurt Again

Derrick Rose faces another challenge in his journey, another knee injury. This time he tore his meniscus in his right knee. To remind you this is after he tore his ACL in his left knee, during the first round of the 2012 playoffs. This caused Rose to miss all of the 2012-2013 season and playoffs. After making a return in the 2013-2014 season, Rose tore his meniscus in his right knee, in the first month of the season. This lead to Rose missing the rest of the season and playoffs, again. There is little hope Rose could return later this season.
This injury is going to be another hurdle for this Bulls team. Something that they have dealt with most of the season. This will likely be their biggest one. It will be up to Aaron Brooks to run the point and players like Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol, and Joakim Noah to step up. Especially with teams like the Cavs improving. It will be important for them to waste no time, if they want a top 4 seed.
Beyond this season the real question is, will Rose ever be the same player that was league MVP? The odds are stacked against him, but we hope for a healthy recovery.
