Derrick Rose Will Return In 4-6 Weeks

Good news. Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose will only miss 4-6 weeks of action.

“Derrick Rose underwent successful surgery Friday morning on the torn medial meniscus in his right knee. Team physician Brian Cole performed a meniscectomy, and the damaged part of Rose’s meniscus was removed. The surgery was of the outpatient variety and Rose walked out of the hospital. Rose is expected to begin rehab Saturday”

General manager Gar Forman estimated Rose’s return to action at four to six weeks, meaning that Rose should play this season. If Rose returns in 4 weeks, he could play in 9 regular-season games. If he returns in 6, he could play in the final 3.

“I know Derrick is anxious to attack this rehab,” Forman said. “We anticipate a full return to activity. He’s full weight-bearing today. In about a week, he’ll be able to do basketball-related drills and increase his strength and go from there.”

Comeback player of the year in waiting. Straight up.
