CHICAGO (AP) - Bulls star Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Rose was helped off the court late in Chicago's 103-91 playoff-opening victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, a staggering blow for a team eyeing a championship run.
He scored 23 points and was playing more like the league's reigning MVP after missing 27 games because of injuries during the regular season, but his season came to an end as the Bulls were wrapping up an impressive win.
Rose crumbled to the ground after he drove the lane with about 1:20 left and the Bulls leading by 12 and was taken to a hospital for an MRI.
