At practice Monday afternoon, the Nets learned about Derrick Rose’s season-ending surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, sending their well-wishes to the Chicago Bulls point guard and former MVP. This is the second straight season that Rose will miss with a knee injury after tearing the ACL in his other knee in the 2012 NBA playoffs, forcing him to sit out the entire 2012-13 season. He played in just ten games this season before going down with the injury.
Deron Williams & Joe Johnson both spoke about the seriousness of Rose’s injury. Video after the jump.
