The Chicago Bulls have announced that injured point guard Derrick Rose will have surgery on his injured knee on Friday morning.
The Bulls are hopeful that after the surgery, Rose could be back on the court in 4 weeks.
The Bulls said Rose will undergo a meniscectomy, which is a removal of part or all of the meniscus, and there is considerable optimism that Rose’s second meniscus tear is small.
If the tear is small and only a small portion of the meniscus is trimmed, it’s possible Rose’s timeline could be in the three- to six-week period.
The surgery will be Rose’s 3rd in 3 years, as the player battles with injuries that have slowed down a great career.
