Derrick Rose Injury Update: Bulls Guard Out 8-12 Months After ACL Surgery

Rose injured his knee in a non-contact hop step during the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Cole did say Rose did not tear his MCL, making the pre-rehabilitation go more easily. But for Bulls fans, that is little consolation given their point guard will most likely most of the 2012-13 NBA Season.
