New York Knicks star Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a fresh knee injury, the National Basketball Association team confirmed Sunday.
Charles is a freshman at Pennsylvania State University from Long Island, New York, majoring in broadcast journalism. In his first season with the Knicks, Rose averaged 18 points per game and 4.4 assists per game.
If I'm a Knicks fan, I'm increasingly nervous w/ every day that goes by without the Knicks waiving Rose.
A torn meniscus in his right knee also sidelined him for the bulk of the 2013-2014 season.
Rose's most serious injury came in April 2012 when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee near the end of Chicago's playoff opener. Prior to the injury, the Knicks hadn't ruled out the possibility of bringing Rose back for next season, according to sources.More news: Self-Inflicted Collapse Chokes GOP Effort to Undo 'Obamacare'
On Sunday, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rose will miss the rest of the 2016-17 season with a torn meniscus.
Rose, who previously said he would like to return to NY, missed the Knicks' previous two games with what the team described as soreness and swelling.
This should also quash any talks of re-signing Rose for the Knicks, at least at the level that Rose has been looking for.
The 28-year-old will be a free agent after this season, and a return to NY after this disastrous season is highly improbable.
