Derrick Rose May Struggle To Return To Form Following ACL Injury, Surgery

The Chicago Bulls would have needed the version of Derrick Rose that was named the NBA's MVP last season to make a run at advancing through the NBA Playoffs and through to the championship this year. What they had was an injury-riddled point guard and, after an uber-unfortunate tearing of his ACL against the Philadelphia 76ers, it seems as though it might be awhile until that Rose returns -- if ever.

Rose had surgery on Saturday and, during a press conference held by the Bulls on Tuesday, news emanated that the timetable for the former Rookie of the Year to return is next January at best (and in time for the 2013-14 season at worst). A story in Wednesday's Chicago Sun Times indicates that Rose probably won't be as good as he once was, however, even when he's cleared by doctors to return to basketball.

If Derrick Rose returns next season, it's unlikely he'll be the player he was before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee April 28.

That's if he returns. The doctor who performed the successful surgery to repair Rose's isolated ACL tear and a meniscus tear Saturday morning at Rush University Medical Center said some athletes take longer to recover for reasons that can be physiological as well as psychological.

"There's no question that happens," Dr. Brian Cole said. "People ask why don't you get back to pre-injury level. In some cases, there's just a level of confidence that they just don't get, which is why we emphasize it so much during rehab, to help train an individual that it's safe to do this."

Hopefully Rose is able to return to form as soon as possible, but it doesn't sound as though we'll be seeing him at full-strength as soon as we'd like.

Derrick Rose Injury Update: Bulls' Doctor Expects 8-12 Month Recovery

It looks like Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose could miss up to half of next season as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in Game 1 of the Bulls' first-round 2012 NBA playoff series with the Philadelphia 76ers, a series Chicago lost in six games. Bulls team doctor Brian Cole said Rose's recovery will take eight to 12 months, which could put him out of action until late January at the earliest.

That's a more pessimistic timetable than a previous report that suggested that Rose could return by late December. A late January return would mark nine months after Rose suffered the injury. He would only miss the whole season if he needed the full 12 months to recover.

Derrick Rose Injury A Torn ACL, Bulls Guard To Miss Rest Of Playoffs

The news on Derrick Rose's injury is in, and it isn't good. The Chicago Bulls star suffered a torn ACL and MCL in the closing minutes of the team's 103-91 NBA Playoffs opener against the Philadelphia 76ers, the team announced Saturday afternoon.

The injury took place with one minute and 10 seconds left in the game and the Bulls leading by 12 points. Rose attempted to make a jump-stop move on Philadelphia's Spencer Hawes, but landed awkwardly on his left knee and stayed on the ground.

Rose missed 27 games during the regular season with a number of nagging injuries, and the Bulls still ended up tied for the league's best record, so they are capable of playing well without their superstar. Still, the injury is a huge blow to their NBA title hopes. Coach Tom Thibodeau will likely be second-guessed for months for leaving Rose in the game despite the comfortable lead.

VIDEO: Derrick Rose Suffers Knee Injury Vs. Philadelphia 76ers

The Chicago Bulls were firmly in control late in their Game 1 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, and yet, Derrick Rose was still on the court. That decision by Tom Thibodeau might be second-guessed for a long time after Rose limped off the court with a knee injury with only a couple minutes remaining in the game. Here's video of Rose's knee injury.

Rose was trying to make a move on Spencer Hawes, but came down awkwardly as he tried a jump stop. There was no body contact on the injury. Rose tried to get back up and walk off, but fell down again.

Rose's teammates looked stunned as he was being tended to on the court. They all know that, despite their regular-season success, they have little chance to win the title if Rose is not healthy. Now, they must hope that the injury ends up not being serious.

Derrick Rose Injury: Bulls Star Hurts Knee In Closing Moments Of Game 1 Vs. Sixers

Derrick Rose, who has struggled with injury all season, appeared to injure his left knee with less than 90 seconds left in the Chicago Bulls' Game 1 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday. The Bulls led by 12 at the time, and play had just resumed after a timeout, which would have given Tom Thibodeau an opportunity to replace his starters.

Rose walked off the court slowly with assistance after receiving attention from the Bulls' medical crew. He received MVP chants and an ovation as he limped off.

Rose was driving to the bucket when he landed poorly and careened to the floor. There did not appear to be contact on the play -- Rose may have just twisted poorly in the air and landed wrong. Regardless, while the Bulls have played well without Rose this season, losing him would be awful for their title hopes.
