Knicks' Derrick Rose out for rest of season with knee injury

Share

Thus ends a star-crossed season that began with a rape trial and pretty much sucked in a way that only a Knicks season can suck.

Rose said at the time that he didn't believe that the injury was anything serious that would need to be surgically repaired. He tore his left ACL in 2012, and underwent two surgeries on his right meniscus. The following season saw him tear the meniscus in his other knee, which limited 2013-14 to just 10 games.

A three-time All-Star, Rose has career averages of 19.5 points and 6.0 assists while playing 470 of a possible 722 games.

He tore it once again in the following season and missed the final 20 games.

The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft.

NY guard Derrick Rose can not catch a break.

The team has already been eliminated from the playoffs, and there are only six games left in the regular season, but there is obvious concern about Rose's future as he heads into free agency this summer.

Rose, who has been out of action since March 27, played well for the Knicks in his first season in NY, averaging 18.0 points and 4.4 assists per game, even if his three-point shooting percentage was down compared to past seasons.

The Knicks are likely to move on from Carmelo Anthony this offseason as well, rebuilding in president Phil Jackson's effort to return the franchise to relevancy.
