For a moment, Luol Deng was back in Chicago, back with the Bulls, back to one of those nauseating moments when word broke of another injury setback for Derrick Rose. "Honestly," Luol Deng said Wednesday, "I was almost in tears. It's different when you know the guy that well. He's a tough guy. I think he'll be fine. But it's just three seasons in a row. He wants to do what he loves, but things keep happening. And honestly, a lot of people would deal with it differently. He just keeps going and keeps working hard." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Wade said he learned of Rose's injury late Tuesday from former Heat teammate LeBron James, who had just finished playing a game for the Cavaliers against the Detroit Pistons. "You just don't want to see players go through injuries, especially him, with what he's dealt with. I couldn't believe it when I got the call. Actually 'Bron called me and told me because I wasn't even watching it. You can't believe it," Wade said. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

When I was around Rose for a few weeks with Team USA this past summer, I noticed that he didn't go anywhere without some combination of the following: foam rollers, rolling sticks, lacrosse balls, resistance bands. After practice one day in New York, I spied him alone in the corner of the gym doing goblet squats with a kettlebell -- a tried-and-true technique for addressing the hip dysfunction that often puts the knees in a vulnerable position.

As you have likely heard, Derrick Rose has once again suffered a serious knee injury and could be out for the remainder of the season. If you are a faithful follower of Reddit’s NBA page, you would have gotten the news before anyone else. A Reddit user who says he is friends with Chicago Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson’s son wrote on the social media site Tuesday night that he had heard Rose will miss around six weeks. “I just got word from my friend (John Paxson’s son) that Derrick Rose has a tear in his meniscus,” KevinAndrewsPhoto wrote. “And will miss around 6 weeks.” Larry Brown Sports

Derrick Rose suffered a medial meniscus tear in his right knee that will require surgery, the Chicago Bulls said Tuesday night, the latest injury for the former NBA Most Valuable Player. Rose, a 26-year-old guard playing for his hometown team, was given the league’s top individual honor after the 2010-11 season, signifying his induction into the NBA’s elite club of stars. Since then, though, a string of injuries has derailed his career. Wall Street Journal
