Wow!!!! Late in the third quarter Derrick Rose went down in a non-contact play, resulting in a right knee injury. He ended the game with 20 pts. and 5 rebs. before leaving the game. Until Saturday in Los Angeles when he undergoes an MRI we won’t know the severity of this injury. Whether you’re a Chicago Bulls fan or not, hearing this news has got to affect you in some way. After being absent for 18-months due to his previous ACL tear to his left knee, that’s the last thing you want to hear as a fan of basketball period! After Friday night’s loss to the Portland Trailblazers Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau had some “concern” for his former MVP:

He has pain and it felt like he couldn’t push off his right knee,” Thibodeau said. “I’m concerned. Any time anyone goes down, you’re concerned. But I don’t want to speculate until we get more information.

I second that motion! Let’s not assume that it’s worse than it really is.
