Derrick Rose's Knee Injury Reportedly a Torn Meniscus, PG Out for Season

Derrick Rose hasn't managed to stay healthy for a full season since 2010-11, when he played in 81 games while earning MVP honors as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Rose suffered a torn meniscus in his knee and will miss the Knicks' remaining six games.

This year, his first with the New York Knicks, had been going well.

Rose was averaging 18.0 points and 4.4 assists in his first season in NY. The Knicks announced that an MRI had revealed the injury and that Rose would require an arthroscopy.

If I'm a Knicks fan, I'm increasingly nervous w/ every day that goes by without the Knicks waiving Rose.

Saints sign QB Chase Daniel
The Saints could still consider drafting a quarterback with one of their five picks in the first three rounds this year. He has thrown for a grand total of 480 yards for one touchdown and one interception.

Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season.

After the guard missed another game Friday, the Knicks have apparently realized the issue is more serious than a day-to-day injury.

Rose has suffered the same injury twice in his National Basketball Association career. Including today's match-up with Boston, Rose had missed three straight games, following a pair of 20-plus point outings against the Spurs and Pistons.

This should also quash any talks of re-signing Rose for the Knicks, at least at the level that Rose has been looking for.

Though their careers may not continue in NY next year, Melo will find a new home easily and it's likely we haven't seen the last of Rose on an National Basketball Association court, either.
