Derrick Rose Is Out For The Year With A Torn Meniscus

The New York Knicks point guard is out for the season.

Derrick Rose has reportedly suffered another serious knee injury that will sideline him for the rest of the year.

The New York Knicks point guard is out for the season with a torn meniscus, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Rose, 28, was averaging 18 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds a game for the Knicks this season. New York is 29-47 and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Rose, a three-time All-Star and the NBA's MVP in 2011, has suffered multiple serious knee injuries since the 2011-12 season. In the playoffs in 2012, Rose tore his ACL and had to miss the following season. In November 2013, he tore his meniscus and had to miss the rest of that season. Another meniscus tear, a less-serious one, forced him to miss significant time during the 2014-15 season.

The former Memphis Tigers' star has been relatively healthy since then, but has never returned (or really even come close) to his MVP form.

The Knicks are set to take on the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden this afternoon. The game is about to tip off and is being televised on ABC.
