A trailer for a new documentary on basketball star Derrick Rose was released Wednesday. 

The documentary, titled "Pooh: The Derrick Rose Story," will premiere April 11 on Stadium. The film sets to chronicle the basketball life of the Timberwolves point guard. 

Former Bulls teammate and current Grizzlies center Joakim Noah, Chicago-born musical artist Chance the Rapper and more appear in the trailer.

Born and raised in Chicago, Rose played one year for Memphis. He was then drafted No. 1 in the 2008 NBA draft by his hometown Bulls. He was named the NBA Rookie of the Year and then became the youngest player to win the league's MVP award in 2011. 

However, Rose struggled with knee injuries since his MVP season. He tore his ACL in his left knee in the first round of the 2012 NBA playoffs and was forced to miss the entire 2012–2013 campaign. He returned to play the following season, but in November 2013, he tore his right meniscus and had to miss the remainder of the season. He came back the following season, but knee injuries caused him to miss more games. He was traded to the Knicks in June 2016 before spending time with the Cavaliers and Jazz. Rose signed with the Timberwolves last March.

In 2016, Rose was found not liable for sexual battery and related civil offenses after a former girlfriend filed a federal civil lawsuit. The lawsuit alleged that Rose and two friends broke into her apartment and gang raped her while she was intoxicated.

Rose was nicknamed "Pooh" by his grandmother after the character Winnie the Pooh.

He's averaging 18.6 points and 4.7 assists per game this season with Minnesota. The Timberwolves are 24–26 and next face the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
