Chicago Bulls
star Derrick Rose underwent surgery on his left knee today to repair the torn ACL he suffered last month.

The Bulls leading scorer was injured in Game 1 of the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers with just a minute left. Rose played in barely half of the Bulls games this season after suffering a litany of injuries ... including turf toe, back spasms, a pulled groin and foot injuries.

No word on how long his recovery will take ... but there is a good chance he will miss a portion of next season as well.
