What was once a likelihood is now official. The Chicago Bulls have announced that Derrick Rose took the smarter, long-term route with his right knee surgery, and is out for the season. Rose underwent an operation to re-attach, and not trim down, the medial meniscus in his right knee on Monday morning, knocking him out for the season, making it so the 2011 NBA MVP will have only played 10 NBA games between April of 2012, and the fall of 2014. Had Rose chose to pare down the meniscus, he would have left himself prone to a career full of arthritis, and a possible career-killing eventual microfracture surgery. The re-attachment avoids all that, but it does mean he will miss nearly all of 2013-14.
