Derrick Rose to have knee surgery again, miss rest of season

The Knicks were recently eliminated from playoff contention, so not having Rose on the court won't affect the team's chances of making a late-season run toward the postseason, but it definitely won't help the Knicks evaluate whether or not they want to bring the former MVP back.

Rose missed his third straight game Sunday against Boston.

Winter weather advisory in effect Friday
This is a very complicated storm even by typical New England standards, and the snow amounts will ultimately reflect this. In Westport, Connecticut, police warned of possible road flooding during high tide, expected at about 3:30 p.m.

The Knicks also announced Rose will need arthroscopic surgery. Rose, who didn't have to rehab last summer for a change, appeared to have regained much of his quickness this season while playing in 64 games and averaging 18 points.

Knee injuries have plagued the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 MVP while he was with the Bulls. However, out of a possible 738 career games, Rose has missed 268, so teams will probably be unwilling to open their checkbooks for the unreliable star.

The official grade of certainty that civilians won't be killed has been lowered from "near certainty" to "reasonable certainty". The military had accused the previous Democratic administration of president Barack Obama of micromanaging combat operations.

In the 2012-13 season opener, Rose tore his ACL and missed the entire year.

The inability to stay healthy forced the Bulls to deal Rose to the Knicks during the 2016 draft. The Knicks had not ruled out re-signing Rose, but another injury means the 28-year-old will find a tough free-agent market. A source told the Tribune that Rose's rehab is projected to take six to eight weeks. Between Joakim Noah's suspension for performance enhancing drugs, Charles Oakley's ejection from a game, and the constant speculation surrounding Phil Jackson and Carmelo Anthony, it's a wonder how anyone still cheers for this team.
