Derrick Rose has suffered a Torn Meniscus in his knee and will miss the remainder of the season. Rose, who appeared in 64 games for the New York Knicks this season, averaged 18.0 points per game and it seemed that he could have a great season. However, he suffered another injury, and it is very unlikely that he will recover from it quickly.

Even though he is only 28, Rose has gone through numerous injuries which affected the course of his career. The former MVP can't catch a break, and this latest injury will affect his value in the free agency.

Career revival

Derrick Rose's downfall started in the 2012 NBA playoffs when he tore his ACL in the first round against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Until that point, Rose was one of the best NBA players, and he was the best point guard in the entire NBA. He averaged 21.0 points and 6.8 assists in his first four seasons, turning the Chicago Bulls into one of the best teams in the league. He led the Bulls to the first seed in the East in 2011, and he became the youngest player to win MVP award that year. However, just a season after, his whole career changed.

Rose missed 2012/13 season, and when he finally started playing, he looked nothing like himself. Last summer, the 28-year old point guard was traded to the New York Knicks in hopes to revive his career, but it did not work out as he suffered yet another injury.

What's next for Derrick Rose?

Derrick Rose's contract expires after this season, and he will be a free agent. His season with the Knicks went well as he averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.

These numbers don't look impressive when compared to his career averages, but they are still excellent, especially considering that Rose was one of the best players on the Knicks roster.

However, since he suffered this unfortunate injury, Derrick Rose will most likely have a lot of trouble getting a big contract in the free agency.

Rose was reportedly looking to get a maximum contract this summer, but there is no NBA team willing to give him all that money since he is coming off a serious injury.
