Rose needs more surgery
CHICAGO – Bulls point guard Derrick Rose will have surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee. Rose reported the knee pain Tuesday, and an MRI confirmed the injury. Rose has been dogged by injuries the past three seasons. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Game 1 of the 2012 playoffs against Philadelphia. He missed the entire next season, then played in only 10 games last season before a right knee injury shelved him for the year.
