Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls sit at #3 in the Eastern Conference, but may have to continue on without Derrick Rose, who is set to undergo surgery.

According to ESPN.com, the star guard has a torn meniscus in his right knee and will undergo surgery.

The team said Rose reported right knee pain earlier in the day on Tuesday (Feb. 24), which was followed by an exam and MRI that confirmed the tear.

A timetable for his return will be determined once he has surgery, said the team.

Rose has been dogged by injuries for the past three seasons.

He went down with a left knee injury during the 2012 playoffs, which resulted in his missing the entire next season. He would return last season, playing only 10 games before a right knee injury shelved him for the rest of the season.
