Derrick Rose to Have Surgery on Torn Meniscus

Derrick Rose to Have Surgery on Torn Meniscus

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose has a torn meniscus in his right knee and he will undergo surgery, according to the team.

Rose reported discomfort and pain in his right knee earlier in the day, and after an examination, the MRI confirmed the tear.

The team says the timetable for Rose's injury won't be determined until the surgery is over.

Rose has had a history of knee injuries beginning in Game 1 of the 2012 playoffs against the 76ers, when Rose suffered a torn ACL. He missed the entire following season, and after 10 games last year, he suffered another knee injury that sidelined him indefinitely.

Whiteside Posts Triple Double in Heat Win

Whiteside Posts Triple Double in Heat Win

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- On way to a victory over the Chicago Bulls, a remarkable event occurred for the Miami Heat. Hassan Whiteside, a center who has worked on his craft in the Developmental League, recorded a triple double for the Heat in their 96-84 win.

By putting up 14 points, 13 rebounds and 12 blocks, Whiteside recorded his first career triple-double. He also did this in 25 minutes of action; achieving the feat in the second shortest period of time in the shot clock era. 

"It's a blessing. Like I told my teammates, you won't believe how things work out in life," said Whiteside. "Three months ago I was at the downtown Y just chilling, working on my game. I couldn't get a team to pick up the phone."

A second round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2010, many teams chose to steer themselves away from Whiteside because of questions about his attitude. After working on his craft overseas and in the D-League, Whiteside signed with the Heat in November.

“That’s what the team needs,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. “It gives us a very different dimension. It’s a credit to him for continuing to work hard and match it with his talent.”

Bulls Beat Up Kobe-Less Lakers

Bulls Beat Up Kobe-Less Lakers

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO, Ill.) -- Tuesday night, as Kobe Bryant sat out, the Lakers continued their mediocre season, losing to the Chicago Bulls.

On Christmas Day, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Los Angeles 113-93.

Bulls forward Pau Gasol led Chicago with 23 points and grabbed 13 rebounds against his former team.

Gasol signed a three-year contract with the Bulls this past offseason after spending the previous seven seasons with Los Angeles.

Derek Rose also showed flashes of his MVP caliber talent as he dropped 20 points on the way to Chicago's fifth straight victory.

Kobe sat out again as he rested from general soreness in his knees, Achilles tendons, back and feet.

Bulls Forward Doug McDermott Out Indefinitely with Knee Injury

Bulls Forward Doug McDermott Out Indefinitely with Knee Injury

Ingrim Publishing/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Chicago Bulls depth has taken a hit as rookie small forward Doug McDermott is out indefinitely with a knee injury.

"Doug McDermott will have an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee," the team said in a release. "The procedure will be performed by Chicago Bulls head team physician Dr. Brian Cole of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.  A timetable for his return will be determined after the procedure."

The Bulls acquired McDermott on draft night from the Denver Nuggets.

McDermott is one of the most prolific college scorers in NCAA history. He ranks fifth all-time in points scored with 3,150.

His rookie season has been a little bumpy. In 17 games this season, McDermott is averaging 3.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes per game.

Despite McDermott's struggles, the Bulls are off to a great start this season. Heading into Saturday, the Bulls stand at 14-8, good for the fourth-best record in the NBA.

Bulls Forward Taj Gibson Suffers Sprained Ankle

Bulls Forward Taj Gibson Suffers Sprained Ankle

NBA via Chicago Bulls(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- The Chicago Bulls have to deal with another injured player as power forward Taj Gibson is out with a sprained ankle.

Midway through the third quarter of the team's game against the Portland Trail Blazers, and have to be carried off the floor by a pair of teammates.

X-rays wound up coming back negative, which is good news considering Gibson has dealt with issues in that same ankle in the past.

"It's the same lingering injury," Gibson said. "Just keep trying to play through it, trying to be there for my teammates. Just push through. All summer I was trying to rehab the same ankle and it just keeps flaring up. I keep having these little bum ankle turns. And I just took some time off from it and tried to rush back and this thing happened again. I'm just frustrated."

The 29-year-old Gibson is a key reserve for the Bulls. In 12 games this season, he's averaging 12.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
