Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season

On Sunday, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rose will miss the rest of the 2016-17 season with a torn meniscus.

Knee injuries have been a serious issue for Rose throughout his career.

Including this season, he hasn't appeared in more than 66 games since he won MVP in 2010-11.

National Hockey League to hold hearing on Sabres' Ristolainen's hit on Guentzel
Guentzel got up briefly before stumbling to the ice and did not return after being escorted immediately to the locker room. The hit came in the first period of Tuesday's game when Ristolainen collided with the Penguins forward along the boards.

Rose, who previously said he would like to return to NY, missed the Knicks' previous two games with what the team described as soreness and swelling.

Rose tore the ACL in his left knee during the 2012 playoffs and missed the entire following season. He has already undergone three different knee surgeries, which limited him to just 49 games over the course of three years from 2011-14. The Knicks sent the Bulls center Robin Lopez and guard Jerian Grant in the deal. While his durability was always in question, his skillset on the floor provided an immediate upgrade for NY at the point guard position. Rose averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds this season. 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.

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.
