Football News

We begin in the NBA, and Chicago Bulls fans have been dealt some devastating news. 

It has been confirmed that star baller Derrick Rose has suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee, which almost certainly rules him out for the rest of the NBA season.

It's now Rose's third major knee injury in the last four years and serious questions will now cloud the talented 26-year-old's career going forward.

Another blow for Rose

"Derrick Rose reported today with right knee pain.  An exam and subsequent MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear of the right knee. Surgery will be scheduled, after which a timeline for his return will be determined," the Bulls revealed on their website on Wednesday morning.

Rose's future in basketball will likely be up for discussion in the aftermath of this latest issue. Unlike his other injuries, Rose was only examined following mild complaints of knee pain, with Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau still expecting him to play Wednesday before his diagnosis.

While it's highly likely he will attempt another NBA return, yet another devastating blow will no doubt give Rose reason to question his future.

It will certainly give the Bulls reason to reconsider their approach with Rose going forward, with the star baller very unlikely to get another contract like the $94.8 million five-year extension he signed in 2011.
