Per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Bulls star, Got ‘Em Coach favorite, and all-around good guy, Derrick Rose has torn the meniscus in his right knee. He will need surgery and is out indefinitely.
Doctors have one of two courses: repair the meniscus (by sewing it back together) or remove it.
Repairing the cartilage requires a longer recovery process, and would likely force Rose to miss the entire ‘13-‘14 regular season. Russell Westbrook had his meniscus repaired in the Playoffs last season, and returned in November.
Removing the cartilage could get Rose back on the court much sooner, but this option can potentially shorten a player’s career, but generally results in long term knee trouble and discomfort. Dwyane Wade had his meniscus removed in college, and has battled multiple knee issues since. Chris Paul had his meniscus removed, but seems to have faired better (for the time being).
The surgical path is decided by the severity of the tear. Repair is generally considered more difficult and is less prevalent. Given Rose’s decision to rehab the ACL tear in his left knee for more than a year, my guess is he chooses to repair the meniscus, if the option is available.
The NBA is worse, and significantly less interesting, without Derrick Rose.
Seven months ago (221 days, to be exact), Kobe Bryant had a complete rupture of the Achilles tendon in his left leg, resulting in blood pooling in his ankle, and his calf muscle rolling up into his leg.
