New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season after tearing the meniscus in his left knee, the team announced Sunday.
He has had multiple knee problems since his 2010-11 MVP season with the Chicago Bulls.
This year, his first with the New York Knicks, had been going well.
Rose, who has been out of action since March 27, played well for the Knicks in his first season in NY, averaging 18.0 points and 4.4 assists per game, even if his three-point shooting percentage was down compared to past seasons.

A shipment with replacement parts needed for that spacewalk is on hold because of rocket concerns at Cape Canaveral, Florida. NASA spokesman Dan Huot said the three remaining shields were installed to cover the most vulnerable spots, the report said.
If I'm a Knicks fan, I'm increasingly nervous w/ every day that goes by without the Knicks waiving Rose.
Since suffering his second knee injury in 2013 Rose has not been able to get back to the skill level he once was at when he won MVP.
Rose suffered the injury in Monday's game against the Pistons and was limping noticeably throughout much of the game. In 470 career games, he's averaged 19.5 points and has also chipped in with 6.0 assists and 3.7 rebounds a night. Rose has missed the past two games with what had been termed a sore left knee. Carmelo Anthony, who has been in NY for the last seven seasons, may be with a new team next season, too.
You would figure this would spell the end of Rose's time in NY, considering the fact that he walked away from the team at one point this year without informing them.
