Knicks' Rose injures knee, out for season

Knicks' Rose injures knee, out for season

Including today's match-up with Boston, Rose had missed three straight games, following a pair of 20-plus point outings against the Spurs and Pistons.

Rose had three previous knee operations while with the Bulls, including one fix a torn ACL in his left knee suffered during the 2012 NBA Playoffs.

The 28-year-old Rose's latest injury setback will require arthroscopic surgery and will be his fourth surgery to either knee - he tore his left ACL in 2012 and underwent two surgeries on his right meniscus.

Last season saw Rose play in 66 games, his most since 2010-11, but a fractured orbital bone sidelined him for 16 games. The following season saw him tear the meniscus in his other knee, which limited 2013-14 to just 10 games.

This has added further pressures to already overwhelmed fragile infrastructure and social services. Most refugees live in informal camps scattered across the country, some in severe poverty.

Troubled by knee injuries throughout much of his career, Rose averaged 18 points in 64 games in his lone season with the Knicks. The Knicks sent the Bulls center Robin Lopez and guard Jerian Grant in the deal.

Rose and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, have both said publicly that Rose would like to return to NY as a free agent.

With a deep point guard class available in this summer's draft, the Knicks could use their lottery pick to find a floor general for the future. Between Joakim Noah's suspension for performance enhancing drugs, Charles Oakley's ejection from a game, and the constant speculation surrounding Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony, it's a wonder how anyone still cheers for this team.
