Report: Derrick Rose likely out until March

Chuck - Red's Army July 23, 2012 Around the NBA, Injuries 8 Comments

The Chicago Tribune buries this nugget in a story about the Bulls financial decisions this summer:

Management will say its financial decisions are cloaked in basketball reasons. With Rose out until likely March, next season is a treading-water season. So instead of depth being the secondary star, the Bulls hope to add a legitimate one alongside Rose.

March? Ouch.

If true, chalk up 2012-13 as a lost season for the Bulls.

    Might was well tank as bad as they can. They won’t be in contention this year, or really next. They should hope to get a good draft pick to pair with Rose.

    As a Celtic fan, I really like Derrick Rose. This is terrible for the Rose and the franchise. I want him to be healthy. I enjoy watching him. This hurts me more for him than the franchise as I think about his career and future. I don’t know know of anyone who has return to their former self to make me not feel sick about this injury. I’ve been thinking that they should tank and aim for a high lottery pick. If they don’t do that they have players to trade for a star. They need to amnesty Boozer. Their owner is so cheap though. He probably cares about the White Sox more than he does about this team. Sad to hear.

      I wouldn’t worry about Da Bulls. I’m sure David Stern will cook up something so they can land a top 3 pick next year.

    Really like Rose. He’s probably the most genuine humble superstar in the league unlike others.It’s unfortunate he’s going through that horrific injury and recovery process.

    Hope get’s better soon.
