Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season

Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season because of torn meniscus in his left knee, according to a report from The Vertical.

The Knicks are 29-48 after Sunday's 110-94 loss to the Boston Celtics and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

In 2015, he re-aggravated the same meniscus injury and this year's injury happened to Rose at the worst possible time, as he will be a free agent this offseason.

Dem senator warns of political danger on Supreme Court vote
Democrats need 41 votes to sustain a filibuster. "I am not comfortable with either choice", McCaskill said in a statement. If the 52 Republicans cannot find eight Democrats to join them in voting for cloture, that could alter the Senate rules.

Wizards beat Lakers 119-108 to clinch division title

U.S. astronaut Peggy Whitson breaks Sunita Williams' spacewalking record
The space blanket was one of four covers created to guard the station from micrometeoroids, and also for thermal protection. You can see the actual event happen in the gif below, which occurred about midway through their seven-hour spacewalk .

This is a developing story. The Knicks announced that an MRI had revealed the injury and that Rose would require an arthroscopy.

Point guard Derrick Rose will complete a disappointing first season with the Knicks on the sidelines. "I really can't think about or see how it's going to go while I'm still playing here".

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. "You can look at it that way", teammate Courtney Lee said. He later had surgery twice on his right knee for torn meniscus issues, and this latest meniscus tear is in his left again. Rose, 28, spent his first seven seasons with the Chicago Bulls until he was traded to the New York Knicks following the 2016 season. Less than two hours before the tipoff Sunday, Jeff Hornacek said Rose was feeling better and may play the next game Tuesday against the Bulls. Sitting down at the table, I think we'll have to talk about.
