The Washington Times Daily - - Sports - SPORTS BRIEFS

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.
