Derrick Rose’s latest knee injury will require surgery, which he’s scheduled to get done in a day or two. While most believe this will end Rose’s season once again, the Bulls are holding out hope for his return this season.
“I think we’re all optimistic about it,” Butler said, when asked about the possibility of Rose returning this year. “We want him back and I’m sure he’s going to try and get back as soon as possible.”
Even if Rose is cleared to play this season, I don’t think it’s worth the risk. Just let him rest up for next season.
