    From a WGN radio guy:

    Jordan Bernfield
    Good source tells me #Bulls fear it's a torn right ACL for Derrick Rose. If so, unlikely he will ever be the same.

    All in for 2015.

    That's the fear. MRI coming soon.

    ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith raised eyebrows in Chicago last week when he suggested Derrick Rose could decide to opt out of his contract next season and leave the Bulls if the team doesn’t surround him with the pieces necessary to compete for an NBA championship.

    Locally, many took exception with Smith’s statement considering D. Rose does not have an opt-out clause in his contract. But the TV analyst stuck to his guns in a recent appearance on ESPN’s Chicago Bulls Weekly radio show and continued to suggest that Rose could decide to leave his hometown and play elsewhere someday.
    “This team is not good enough and if it maintains that status, then you’re going to have a very unhappy Derrick Rose in the years to come,” Smith said. “The nice guy that he is, that has been willing to acquiesce and capitulate to the demands and the wishes of the Chicago Bulls, that’s not going to be the case as the years progress.”

    Just a ploy by Rose to save himself for important games?

    "Only" torn meniscus, but still needs surgery, per Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter:

    "Out indefinitely." Just what every Bulls fan wants to hear.

    Yeah, less than the whole season, though, and his career isn't essentially over. So a lot better than I thought, I guess ...

    He'll be ready just in time to sign a free agent contract

    Major bummer. Seems like with some guys, once they get hurt once, the second injury quickly follows.

    Why hasn't he returned yet? Pussy.

    That does beg the question: "How much money would you commit to someone with that injury history?" If I were a GM, I wouldn't touch someone like that until he's had at least 2-3 healthy seasons under his belt since the injury.
