Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose is out for the season after he underwent successful surgery to repair his torn medial meniscus in his right knee, the team announced on Monday.

Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP who missed all of last season after tearing his left ACL in the 2012 playoffs, played in 10 games this season, averaging 15.9 points per game and 4.3 assists in 31.1 minutes.

Rose injured the knee in the third quarter of the Bulls' loss in Portland on Friday night. Bulls team physician Brian Cole, who also repaired Rose's torn ACL, performed the surgery Monday morning.

Rose, who turned 25 last month, has played only 50 games in the last three seasons.

Chicago went 45-37 last season without Rose and advanced to the second round of the playoffs before losing to the Miami Heat.
