|Derrick Rose clutches his knee during the Bulls 103 - 91 win over the 76ers|
Looking at the replays, at first I thought that Rose's knee bumped into another players, but it didn't look like it did. Rose went up for a shot, after a quick cut, and while in the air, he tried to get rid of the ball to clutch his knee. He was down for several minutes and needed to be helped off the court. Extremely unfortunate for Rose, the Bulls, and their championship dreams. There still is no word on whether or not the injury is serious, but what I know, if you need help getting off the court, it's somewhat serious.
Derrick Rose has been battling injuries all season long. The condensed season has cause several injuries to many players, including big name players such as Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, and Kobe Bryant, but Rose missed 27 or the 66 games played this season. He's been in and out of the line up but the Bulls have done a great job of landing that #1 seed in the East with their captain battling injuries. But let's get something straight, the Bulls need Rose to be great in order for them to reach the finals. The Heat are killing the Knicks (up 37 in the 4th at the writing of this post) and if the Bulls are to compete with them, they will need his leadership.
