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.

I just had that surgery and the recovery is horrible. After 3 months of Physical Therapy 3 times a week I have 75% use of my arm. They say that's about as good as it's going to get, too. Not to mention, sometimes the pain just made me cry!

Forecasters will tell you it's time to let him go. Looks like he's gonna be the weakest link in the team.

90 million dollars for him and he was injured for a majority of the season. As a Bulls fan I am wondering how useful he will be to the team next season. That's a lot of money to pay someone who doesn't appear too healthy to begin with.
