Report: Bulls' Derrick Rose Needs MRI For Injured Left Knee

Derrick Rose appeared to injure his left knee in the final minutes of the Chicago Bulls' Game 1 win today over the Philadelphia 76ers, and according to TNT sideline reporter Cheryl Miller, he's now heading to a local hospital for an MRI.

Rose spun on a drive to the basket and landed awkwardly on his left leg with about 1:18 left in the Bulls' 103-91 win. He was down for a couple of minutes and unable to leave the court on his own power; he needed multiple assistant coaches to help carry him off the United Center floor.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose was later able to move the leg, but an MRI was needed to determine the severity of the injury.

Unbelievably, this is the sixth different injury Rose has suffered this season -- he has battled ailments of the toe, lower back, groin, ankle and foot throughout this year.

Rose played 39 of the Bulls' 66 games this season, averaging 21.8 points and 7.9 assists per contest.

The Bulls play the Sixers in Game 2 at home on Tuesday night; Rose's availability is yet unknown.
