Nov 22, 2013; Portland, OR, USA;  Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose (1) walks out of the Moda Center on crutches after being injured in the game against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers won the game 98-95. Mandatory Credit: Steve Dykes-USA TODAY SportsDoes someone have a voodoo doll of Derrick Rose? It would appear so, as Rose exited a game for the second time this season in just 11 games.

This injury, unlike his first (which ended up being a minor hamstring strain) looked more ominous as he left the court while not being able to put any pressure on his right knee.

The injury occurred late 3rd quarter when Rose made simple cut to the basketball without the ball. His knee just buckled. Almost looked like when a wide receiver's legs get stuck in AstroTurf. 

Rose was immediately treated on the bench and helped to the back. The Bulls announced shortly thereafter that Rose would not return to the game.

Rose will undergo an MRI Saturday to determine the damage. Bulls' fans can only hope for the best, i.e. a sprain, but will fear the worst, i.e. a MCL/ACL injury that will end his season.


The only good news is this is not the same leg that suffered an ACL tear, which caused Rose to miss 18 months of basketball. 

I think I speak for every Bulls' fan when I scream--GODDAMMIT!

Goodness, I'm gonna have to start calling him Mr. Glass. He may as well retire if it's torn.

Really hoping its not another torn ACL. That would be beyond sad.
