Rose (knee) underwent a left knee arthroscopy to repair his torn meniscus on Monday. It was announced on Sunday that Rose would miss the remainder of the season due to his torn meniscus. The point guard has suffered a plethora of knee injuries in his career, but this particular one appears to be on the more minor side. The team described the surgery as "uncomplicated" and said that he is expected to resume basketball activities in 3-to-6 weeks. Rose will be a free agent this offseason and, though his injury will likely hurt his stock, it may not decrease his value as much as originally anticipated.
Rose was diagnosed Sunday with a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Rose just can't catch a break, as the oft-injured point guard has once again suffered a knee injury that should keep him out for an extended period of time. While a torn meniscus isn't necessarily the worst case scenario, it's still a tough blow for Rose, who may see a much smaller market for his services as he heads into free agency this summer. According to Wojnarowski, Rose will have the knee scoped and is expected to be out for six-to-eight weeks, so he should be back to full strength by early June. Rose finishes his 2016-17 campaign with averages of 18.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists across 32.5 minutes in 64 games. Ron Baker should finish out the last week and a half of the season as the Knicks' starting point guard, a role that should afford him 30-plus-minutes.
Rose (knee) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game with the Celtics, Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News reports. Rose will be missing a third straight game, and he could be in line for additional absences considering the Knicks have already been eliminated from playoff contention and likely aren't in a hurry to bring back the veteran point guard, who is set to become a free agent this offseason. Ron Baker drew the start in Rose's place the last two games and should do so again Sunday, which will afford him 30-plus minutes. In seven starts this season, Baker has averaged 4.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists across 24.7 minutes, so he still likely won't be a great DFS option Sunday.
Rose (knee) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Heat. Rose also missed Wednesday's game versus Miami due to soreness in his left knee. With the Knicks' lottery fate now sealed, getting players like Ron Baker and Chasson Randle more minutes is of a higher priority than risking the health of players like Rose, Carmelo Anthony (back) and Lance Thomas (hip), who will all sit out Friday evening. At the moment, it remains to be seen whether Rose will be in contention to play Sunday against the Celtics.
Rose (knee) will be a game-time decision for Friday's tilt with the Heat, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Coach Jeff Hornacek indicated prior to shootaround Friday that Rose would attempt to go through a workout, but it's unclear how he looked during the session. As such, it doesn't look like clarity on his status will arrive until closer to the 8:00 p.m. ET tip off, but it seems like a decent possibility that the point guard will miss his second straight game if he's feeling at all limited by the sore left knee in the hours leading up to the contest. Ron Baker, who played 40 minutes and provided six points, five rebounds and three assists in Wednesday's loss to the Heat, would likely pick up another start at point guard if Rose is out again.
