Knee injuries have plagued the three-time All-Star and 2010-11 MVP while he was with the Bulls.

This year, his first with the New York Knicks, had been going well.

Derrick Rose needs surgery to fix torn left knee cartilage and the New York Knicks say he will miss the rest of the season. He averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists for a team with a 29-47 record entering Sunday's game against Boston. "The explosiveness that you saw years ago, you saw (this year)".

The Knicks were recently eliminated from playoff contention, so not having Rose on the court won't affect the team's chances of making a late-season run toward the postseason, but it definitely won't help the Knicks evaluate whether or not they want to bring the former MVP back. This injury will require arthroscopic surgery (his fourth knee surgery) at the worst possible time as he's set to hit free agency this summer.

On Sunday, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Rose will miss the rest of the 2016-17 season with a torn meniscus.

Beto O'Rourke to announce Senate bid against Ted Cruz
O'Rourke is still relatively unknown in Washington and in Texas, and El Paso has never produced a statewide elected official. O'Rourke first floated the notion of a Senate campaign to The Texas Tribune just before Election Day last fall.

After a strong start to his career which saw Rose winning league MVP in 2010/11 season, Rose has been pestered by knee problems for the better part of his National Basketball Association career, suffering a torn ACL in the 2011/12 season and then a torn MCL in the 2013/14 season.

When he's healthy, Rose is a dynamic scorer. Rose has missed the past two games with what had been termed a sore left knee.

This should also quash any talks of re-signing Rose for the Knicks, at least at the level that Rose has been looking for.

A disappointing first year in NY has come to a close for Derrick Rose.
