Derrick Rose Expected To Return This Season

Some great news for Bulls and Derrick Rose fans. The guard underwent a successful surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to return to action this season.

Barring any setbacks, Rose will be back right in time for the NBA playoffs. Via Chicago Tribune:

Team physician Brian Cole performed a meniscectomy, and the damaged part of Rose’s meniscus was removed. The surgery, which sources said lasted no more than 15 minutes, was of the outpatient variety and Rose walked out of the hospital able to bear full weight.

Rose is expected to begin rehab Saturday.

General manager Gar Forman estimated Rose’s return to action at four to six weeks, meaning that Rose should play this season. If Rose returns in four weeks, he could play in nine regular-season games. If he returns in six, he could play in the final three.
