It appears as though New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose's knee injury was worse than originally expected.
Those close to Rose expect him to be at full health two months after the surgery, which will be scheduled shortly. He first tore his meniscus ten games removed from returning to the Bulls after tearing his ACL in the 2012 NBA Playoffs. He then tore the meniscus in his right knee in his first season back from surgery, costing him the final 72 games. Rose has missed the past two games with what had been termed a sore left knee. He said on Wednesday that he initially felt the discomfort in his knee before the Knicks' win over the Pistons on Monday, in which he played 33 minutes and scored 27 points.
Knee injuries have been a serious issue for Rose throughout his career. Though the team has struggled its way to a disappointing 29-48 record, Rose had played in 64 games, averaging 18 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds per night.

Flores continues to be the voice of the Raiders on radio game coverage and he said he is ready to go wherever is necessary. He said the vote came very quickly after Raiders' owner Marc Davis made his presentation to the owners.
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.
The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft. Fixing up Rose's meniscus when they don't have is some pretty good P.R.as far as attracting future free agents is concerned, and Lord knows the Knicks could use some good P.R. these days.
