NBA PLAYOFFS - Rose's torn ACL could sideline MVP for nine months

By Fakhouri Amjid

BY now, everybody knows. Derrick Rose is out for the remainder of these NBA playoffs, no thanks to a severe injury the reigning MVP sustained in the final 70 seconds of Saturday's Bulls-Sixers showdown at the United Center.

What wasn't known was the extent of the injury and what the future holds for the 23-year old superstar guard.

It's a torn ACL, short for anterior cruciate ligament. The ACL, reports the Chicago Tribune, is the ligament that stabilizes the knee from front to back. It is vulnerable to rapid changes of direction, sudden stops and pivots. Once the ACL is torn, the knee more easily buckles, allowing the tibia (shin bone) to shift too far forward.

Rose has missed a total of 27 regular games this past regular season due to five different injuries -- left toe sprain, lower back spasms, right groin strain, right ankle sprain and sore right foot.

But those hurts pale in comparison to the torn ACL. After surgery and rahabilitation, medical experts opine that Rose could be sidelined between a low of six months to a high of nine months. That means Rose will miss the upcoming London Olympics as well as the early part of the 2012-2012 NBA season.

As huge as this loss is, the Bulls are determined to come together and rise to the challenge.

"Derrick's not only a great player, he's a great teammate, a great person, but it's not a death sentence. It's not a death sentence for him, it's not a death sentence for our team. He's going to come back. He'll come back better than ever. It's just the way it is and we've got to deal with it," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday afternoon.

"Obviously, it's tough losing Derrick. I feel sorry for him, but we can't feel sorry for ourselves. The whole team has to step up. Our margin for error is a lot smaller without Derrick. Can you replace a guy like Derrick? But it's on us to step up as much as possible," Bulls center Joakim Noah told reporters.

With their 103-91 Game 1 victory, the Bulls hold a 1-0 series lead against the Sixers. Game 2 of this best-of-7 affair is Tuesday night at the United Center. (Fakhouri Amjid)
