Shocked? It's Derrick Rose after all. Late last night the Chicago Bulls announced a MRI exam confirmed a medial meniscus tear of Rose’s right knee, which will require surgery.

Derrick Rose is out once again. The Chicago Tribune reports that a timeline for his return will be determined following the procedure. The good news is that two sources said the initial belief is that this tear isn’t as extensive as the one Rose suffered in the same knee in November 2013.

The Tribune reports that one of those sources said Rose’s transition to recovery could be similar to the taken by Russell Westbrook. You will recall that Westbrook tore his meniscus and underwent three surgical procedures. The final of those three took place in December 2013. Westbrook returned to action two months later.

Derrick Rose almost certain to miss remainder of season and puts the Bulls playoff prospects in jeopardy

Derrick Rose nor the Bulls know when or how the latest injury occurred.

In Monday night's Bulls win over the Bucks, Rose only shot 1-for-13. Thus far a very lackluster season for Rose.

The Tribute reports that Derrick Rose, 26, is scheduled to make $20 million next season and $21.3 million in 2016-17.
