All of Chicago is waiting in somber for the results of Derrick Rose‘s MRI on his right knee. Rose injured his knee in the third quarter of the Chicago Bulls game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday. Immediate speculation is that Rose suffered a torn ACL in his right knee. Though, medical sources of various reporters were not able to determine the extent of the injury when looking at the play.
With that said, take a look at the play.

The only certainty when it comes to the latest knee injury to Rose is that the point guard is expected to miss an extended amount of time. If it is indeed a second ACL tear, then chances are that Rose will never be the player that was the youngest player ever to win the league MVP award. But, that is the worst case scenario. The knee injury could be a multitude of different knee injuries including a MCL sprain. A MCL sprain is what Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler suffered against the Green Bay Packers in the 2011 playoff game. A MCL sprain would keep Rose sidelined for 3 to 4 weeks.
But, there is no credibility on speculation. The credibility will come with the results of the MRI.
