Derrick Rose starts knee rehab for Bulls


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Derrick Rose started rehab from his knee surgery on Saturday, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.

Thibodeau reported that Rose is in good spirits, and the entire rehab schedule has been mapped out for him.  

"It's just the initial steps," Thibodeau said. "But we're cautiously optimistic, he's in good spirits. He's on it, so it's good. ... "It's mapped out with the medical people. The one thing about Derrick is he's been through a few of them. He'll follow the plan and hopefully everything goes fine."

Rose had a meniscectomy on Friday and is expected back in four-to-six weeks. 


Bulls' Derrick Rose has meniscectomy, could return 4-6 weeks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Bulls guard Derrick Rose underwent a meniscectomy in his right knee, the team announced on Friday. general manager Gar Forman called the procedure minor and said Rose was able to walk out of the hospital. Forman said that depending on the rehab, he could return to action in four-to-six weeks, per the Chicago Tribune.

This was the second meniscus surgery Rose has undergone in as many years. Last year, Rose had his meniscus repaired or reattached, which kept him sidelined the remainder of the 2013-14 season. This time around, he will have a surgical removal of all or a part of his torn meniscus, which will give him as shorter rehabilitation timetable, but may cause long-term issues like arthritis or cysts down the road.

Rose averaged 18.4 points and 5.0 assists in 46 games this season before going down with the injury. Executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson remained upbeat about Rose's chances of playing again this season.

"Nothing is an easy procedure, but our anticipation is that there's an area that's going to get taken care of and the hope is that he will (play this season)," Paxson said before the procedure, per the Tribune.


Bulls' Derrick Rose to undergo surgery Friday to repair meniscus


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Bulls guard Derrick Rose will undergo surgery Friday to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced.

It will be the second surgery Rose has needed on his right knee to repair a meniscus tear. The timetable for Rose's recovery will be provided once the surgery has been completed.

While the amount of damage in Rose's knee will determine how long he'll be out, Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said they are hopeful Rose can still play this season, reports the Chicago Tribune.

"The hope is that [Rose] will play this season," Paxson said.


Report: Rose's meniscus injury not as serious as last season's tear


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) The torn medial meniscus Bulls point guard Derrick Rose suffered in his right knee is not believed to be as serious as the one he suffered last season, according to Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson on Wednesday.

The Bulls announced Tuesday night that Rose will undergo surgery after an MRI revealed a medial meniscus tear in his right knee, putting the remainder of his 2014-2015 campaign in jeopardy. It's the seventh time he's missed any playing time since his 2010-11 MVP campaign. The team is unsure when the injury occurred, and emphasized that there is no guarantee it happened in Rose's last game against Milwaukee on Monday. He required surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in the same knee in Nov. 2013 and missed the remainder of the 2013-14 season while recovering.

According to Johnson, Rose's surgery will come "sooner rather than later" and the front office won't have a grasp of his recovery timetable until the procedure is done. In 2013, Rose had surgery two days after his meniscus tear. It remains to be seen if doctors will recommend Rose to have his meniscus repaired or completely removed during the procedure, though a "snip procedure" could be likely for the guard.

"First and foremost, it's concern for Derrick not only as a basketball player but as a person," coach Tom Thibodeau said. "It's not an easy thing because of how everybody feels about him.

"This one hopefully will be shorter.

"It's so unfair. He's been through so much," Thibodeau added.
