DERRICK ROSE SAYS GOODBYE TO THE REST OF THE SEASON
Wed, 02 May 2012 11:32 PM EDT

Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will abandon the remainder of the season, the team announced. Basketball scores

Rose suffered the injury while trying to jump off his left foot in the lane with 1:22 left in Saturday’s playoff game versus the Philadelphia 76ers.

Rose was helped off the court before the Bulls sealed their 103-91 Game One win. Rose had 23 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists when he was injured. NFL spreads

Team medical staff right away dashed out and inclined to Rose for a short while as he was writhing hurting close to the baseline before helping him to the locker room. Rose was taken to the hospital, where MRI results confirmed the Bulls’ worst fears.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was questioned about his idea of keeping his quality players in late-game eventualities when the outcome is not in doubt.

It has been a recurring line of questioning for Thibodeau, particularly concerning Rose, who has battled several injuries.

“I don’t work backwards like you people do,” Thibodeau expounded. “The score was going the other way.”

The mood in the Bulls’ locker room wasn’t befitting a winning team.

“I just started saying a prayer,” expounded Bulls backup guard John Lucas, who will now see additional playing time with Rose out.

“It’s like the most tragic win,” Bulls shooting guard Kyle Korver related. “In any case, we need to pick ourselves up. We’ve played plenty of games this year without him. So perhaps it was just getting us prepared for this.”

The 23-year-old Rose played in just 39 of the Bulls’ 66 regular-season games due to turf toe, back spasms, pulled groin and foot injuries. He hasn’t played more than 2 games in a row since suffering a foot injury on March 12.

“It’s tough,” Carlos Boozer asserted. “It seems like he just can’t catch a break. … I just feel for him, man. He really can’t catch a break this season.”

Rose turn into the 5th player named to Team USA’s 20-man preliminary list to have been ruled out before May. Orlando’s Dwight Howard (back), Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) and the L.A Clippers’ Chauncey Billups (Achilles) also suffered bad injuries during the lockout-shortened season requiring surgery, while the Dallas Mavericks’ Lamar Odom has been eliminated from contention for this summer’s Olympic team because of the longstanding struggles that pushed the Mavericks to deactivate Odom for the remainder of the season.

But Team USA chairman Jerry Colangelo said before Rose’s injury, that no extra names would be added to the 15 that remain on the initial registry, from which coach Mike Krzyzewski’s 12-man squad bound for London will be announced in June.

Because Team USA is so deep at point guard — with the Clippers’ Chris Paul, New Jersey’s Deron Williams and Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook still free — Rose’s injury won’t always force USA Basketball officers to re-think their plans.

The bigger concern for Colangelo and Krzyzewski remains the frontcourt rotation, with the injuries to Howard and Aldridge leaving just one true center on the preliminary list (New York’s Tyson Chandler) and a few big men presumed able of playing center internationally: Minnesota’s Kevin Love, Miami’s Chris Bosh and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin.
