Bulls lose Rose again as star guard set to have knee surgery
LOS ANGELES | Derrick Rose will have surgery on his right knee Monday, and the Chicago Bulls don’t yet know how long they’ll be without their star guard this time.
Rose headed home to Chicago while the Bulls went back to work Sunday, facing the Los Angeles Clippers in their first game since Rose tore cartilage in his knee in Portland on Friday night.
Chicago coach Tim Thibodeau says the Bulls won’t know how long Rose will be out until surgeons decide how to fix the knee.
The Bulls’ core has plenty of experience playing without the 2011 NBA MVP. Rose missed all of last season recovering from a torn ligament in his left knee.
